SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. — Investigators are working to piece together what led a man to kill four people — including three children — before turning a gun on himself in the northern Ontario city of Sault Ste. Marie.
Police have called what happened a case of intimate partner violence and have not released the identities of those involved.
Chief Hugh Stevenson has said police got a domestic violence call from one of two homes involved in the gunman’s rampage a day before the shootings took place.
Stevenson has not released further details but has said the shooter was involved in intimate partner investigations in the past.
