    Canada - Shooting at Brampton, Ontario, courthouse

    This just came up on my facebook feed. No link yet as it's just breaking:

    BREAKING NEWS: Brampton, Ontario courthouse: police investigate 'serious incident.' Unconfirmed reports of shooting at courthouse in serious incident. More to come.



    ETA: here's a link to a different MSM source

    lots of witnesses calling into media (lawyers etc. in the building) - everyone was rushed into courtrooms and locked down and some saying they heard as many as five (5) shots

    this is all over every news channel right now in Canada - live reporting

    this is not a regular occurance around here so it's pretty big news right now

    omg, I just read that paramedics were performing CPR and that early reports are that two are dead - which would probably mean the police officer and the shooter

    I'm sick to my stomach right now

    S.I.U. (Special Investigations Unit) is already on scene and has already invoked their mandate, according to the live twitter feed on star.com.

    I had to attach the link because I can't figure out how to upload the video atm.

    Still checking other msm for any more info.

    Sorry the link looks like that...I pasted it over here to this post.

    "....Peel Police called it at an active shooting Investigation..."


    http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/03...n_5049897.html

    "..... Peel Police confirmed to The Toronto Star that one of their officers was involved in the shooting. It's unclear if he was at the courthouse in his capacity as a police officer or if he was a court officer stationed at the courthouse....."

    here's another MSM link:

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toront...90179?cmp=fbtl

    there's a photo on that live feed of the police officer's collegues waiting outside the hospital emergency entrance waiting for word on how he's doing

    it's heartbreaking

    also, there's one pic of the officer being loaded into the ambulance - it's a side view - it's close-up and the officer (IMO) is easily identifiable

    I really hope his family did not see that prior to being notified that their loved one had been shot

    one source is reporting that there were other victims and they were transported to a different hospital ...

    I've only seen this from one person so I don't know whether to believe it

    at the same place I also read that the officer had non-life threatening injuries (ummm, then why were they doing CPR on him, which could be clearly seen in the photos posted?!) and that there is a second suspect in the building (ummm, they're already letting people out of the locked rooms so I highly doubt that!)

    yeah ... sooo ... grain of salt at this link:

    there apparently is a terrorist-related trial going on there right now ... not saying that it's connected because there's obviously a myriad of possibilities but just putting this out there

    I have to go for awhile. I hope that when I am able to check back in, that there will be a happy update and the police officer will be alive.
