Few details are known about Klein at this time.

Originally from Alberta, the 21-year-old has been in Vancouver since February or March of this year but has no fixed address.

Edmonton police had not been made aware of any connection between Klein and the city as of Thursday. The Calgary Police Service, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat Police are also not involved at this time.

Klein was supposed to make his first court appearance on Wednesday but was unable to leave his cell on his own and was being restrained. He will next appear in court on Monday.

Investigators are asking anyone with information or contact with Klein, whether through social media or email, to please contact the police, IHIT or Crime Stoppers.

A memorial for the two victims has been growing outside Abbotsford Senior Secondary School.

Flowers and gifts are being placed outside the school by students, teachers, parents and residents from around the Lower Mainland. Candles are also being lit to remember the two victims.

The school will be closed until Monday.
