Source says suspect who killed two Edmonton officers was 16, also shot his mother

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.

Const. Travis Jordan, who was 35, and 30−year−old Const. Brett Ryan were shot when they responded to a family dispute at an apartment building early this morning.

Police have said the officers were shot when they approached a suite in the building and didn’t have a chance to fire their guns.

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.
