February 15 , 2015
A 20-year-old Canadian man and a 23-year-old US woman have been charged in the foiled plot to carry out a shooting attack in Halifax, Canada, the police have said.
Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath of Illinois, US, and Randall Steven Shepherd of Nova Scotia, Canada, have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.
They will appear in court on Tuesday. It is not clear if Souvannarath would be extradited to the US.
Peter MacKay, Canada's federal justice minister, described the pair as “murderous misfits”.
