Two police officers are among the four people who have died in a shooting in Fredericton this morning, and one suspect is in custody.

Police said that the Brookside Drive area on the city's north side would be blocked off for the foreseeable future as "the investigation is ongoing.''

David MacCoubrey said he awoke in his Brookside Drive apartment at 7:07 a.m. local time to the sound of gunshots "10 metres from my bed.''

MacCoubrey said three gunshots woke him up, and as many as 17 more were fired between that time and around 8:30 a.m..

"It sounded like the first one came from right outside my bedroom window... I was hoping for the two seconds that I was groggy that it was kids blowing off firecrackers,'' said MacCoubrey in a phone interview from inside his apartment, where he was sitting on the floor away from windows.

"Then two more happened within the first three minutes.''

He said his apartment complex has four buildings in a square, and it sounded like the shots were coming from the middle of the complex.

Earlier in the morning, police were asking people in the area to stay inside with their doors locked, and not to post information on social media about the position or activities of police.

MacCoubrey said police have been searching the buildings and went through his apartment.
