“We’re still trying to find the motive for this whole incident, so that’s part of the ongoing investigation.”

De Jager said Mounties received a call about a possible shooting in the downtown at about 10:30 a.m. and the suspect was taken into custody about an hour later.

Earlier, police cordoned off the city’s downtown and were telling people to avoid the area because of a serious, unfolding situation.

They asked the public to follow the direction of police and to avoid areas bordered by Eckhardt Avenue, Lakeshore Drive, and Main and Power streets.

“I understand that this is a deeply troubling incident that has taken place in our community,” De Jager told a news conference.

He said one person was found dead in the north end of the city; the three others were found in the south end.
