Canadian police foil plot to kill people in Halifax

Posted:

 Canadian police say they've arrested three people in an alleged plot to kill people in a public place in Halifax.

   The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement Friday a 19-year-old Canadian man and a 23-year-old woman from Geneva, Illinois had access to firearms and intended "to go to a public venue in the Halifax region on February 14th with a goal of opening fire to kill citizens, and then themselves."

   A senior government official said it is not terror related. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

   Police released few details but say they arrested three suspects. A fourth suspect, the 19-year-old man, was found dead at a residence when police entered a home.
