Police say they’ve stopped an alleged plan by Muslims to kill people in a public place in the Halifax area on Valentine’s Day.
None of the elites in the media will speak to motive —
Nova Scotia police prevented an alleged mass shooting suspects were to carry out Saturday, RCMP brass say.
Investigators learned early Thursday of what they call “a serious weapons-related threat” that led them to a Timberlea home. They followed a 19-year-old suspect there, according to an RCMP statement, and then found him dead inside.
They believe the deceased Timberlea man and an Illinois woman planned to go to a “public venue… with the goal of opening fire to kill citizens and then themselves,” RCMP Asst. Commissioner Brian Brennan said in a statement Friday night.
Brennan would not say where exactly in the province the suspects had been planning to attack.
Police arrested the 23-year-old American woman and a 20-year-old Cole Harbour man around 2 a.m. at the Halifax airport. They have since arrested a 17-year-old Nova Scotia boy who they believe may be connected.
There are no clear religious or political motivations for the shooting plot RMCP said at a Friday evening news conference. RCMP do not suspect this was connected to any known terrorist group.
Witnesses reported a heavy police presence in Cole Harbour area on Friday, related to the Timberlea case.
But Friday night police said they had contained the threat. They do not expect to make any more arrests.
