Edmonton: A police source says a suspect who shot and killed two Edmonton police officers was 16 years old and that he also shot and wounded his mother.

They were rushed to hospital where they were declared dead.

Police also said a woman related to the suspect was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries but was in serious but stable condition.

They said the suspect was found dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. — Canadian Press.
