Canadian police foil 'shooting plot'; one suspect kills self

  • A plot to carry out a mass shooting in Canada has been foiled by the police, authorities said.

    A suspect shot himself dead and three were arrested after officers surrounded a house in the Halifax area on Saturday.

    The police said at least two of the suspects planned to "[open] fire to kill citizens” in a public venue.

    Terrorism did not seem to be the motive, the police indicated, but no further details were provided.
