Police at scene of double shooting outside Fredericton, area cordoned off

Fredericton police have surrounded a residence in a trailer park west of the city after two people were shot earlier this morning.

Police spokeswoman Sonya Jilks says one person is in custody.

Jilks says the shooting was not a random act and the two victims were taken to hospital and are expected to recover from their injuries.

Meanwhile, an emergency response team is in the area close to a home, but Jilks says it remains unclear whether anyone is inside.

Nearby homes have been evacuated.

The city police force is asking people to avoid the Hanwell and Pine Grove trailer park, which is across from the Kingswood Golf Course.
