Associated Press

TORONTO (AP) — Canadian officials say a 16-year-old wounded his mother with a firearm and killed two police officers before taking his own life in western Canada.  A police official and a senior government official say the male suspect shot and wounded his mother early Thursday in Edmonton, Alberta. Police say two patrol officers were then killed while responding to a domestic dispute call. Police chief Dale McFee says the suspected gunman died from a self-inflicted gun wound. He says the officers were shot upon arriving at an apartment suite around 12:47 a.m. and there was no indication the officers were able to get any shots off. McFee says a woman was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries where she remains in serious but stable condition.
