Ottawa, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 17th Apr, 2019 ) :A retired city engineer was charged Tuesday with the murders of four people in what police have called a 'targeted' shooting spree in the western Canadian city of Penticton.
Investigators then discovered the bodies of two more victims during a search of the suburbs of Penticton, which has a population of around 30,000.
The suspect made a brief court appearance on Tuesday.
"Our preliminary investigation has determined that the accused and each of the victims were known to each other," Royal Canadian Mounted Police Superintendent Ted De Jager told a press conference.
"The question of motive remains under investigation," he said. "At this time, our investigation is continuing across multiple crime scenes." On Monday, De Jager called the shootings a "targeted incident." Renate Winter, whose 71-year-old husband Rudi was one of those killed, told local media she believed his murder was likely linked to a neighborhood dispute.
