January 2, 2015

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Edmonton police have identified eight people who were gunned down earlier this week by a man who then took his own life in a rampage described as the Canadian city’s worst mass shooting.

Police said Friday that Phu Lam shot his wife and her eight-year-old son, as well as his sister-in-law, her daughter and his wife’s parents. The victims lived in the same residence in Edmonton. Another male acquaintance was shot in that same home.

Lam later shot Cyndi Nguyen, 37, at a home in another part of the city. Police have not yet identified the relationship between the Duong and Lam families.

Police discovered the eight bodies on Monday before locating Lam, who fatally shot himself at a restaurant in Fort Saskatchewan, a bedroom community northeast of Edmonton.
