Police in eastern Canada say there have been "multiple fatalities" following a shooting in the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Another police tweet said one person was taken into custody but gave no immediate details on where the incident occurred.

Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick, a province on the eastern side of the country and above ME in the USA.

They were also asking people on Facebook not to use social media to report on police locations. But officials warned that the incident was "still active" and urged residents to stay inside and lock their doors.

Police said the station as been inundated with calls and asked the public to "refrain from calling the police station directly" and to call 911 if there is an emergency.

David MacCoubrey, who lives in Fredericton, said he heard about 20 shots and was hiding on his kitchen floor.

Play was scheduled to start at 11:00 BST, but steady rain kept the covers on the pitch and prevented the toss at 10:30. The forecast for the next two days (Saturday and Sunday) is much better and we can expect full 90 overs on both days.

Police said that no names are being released at this time.

"It was sort of like a pop, pop, pop, pop".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted about the incident this morning.

Speaking to Global News, another resident, Dave MacCoubrey, said that he could have heard as many as 17 shots coming about 30 feet from his bed. "My heart goes out to everyone affected by this morning's shooting", he said.

Last month, a gunman walked down a busy Toronto street, killing two people and wounding 13 others before turning his weapon on himself.
