The RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador say police have a suspect in custody after reports of an active shooter near the village of Terra Nova northwest of St. John’s.

At one point Mounties told people in the community on Tuesday night to lock their doors, shelter in place, and to stay away from windows.

Police later said in a release that there is no longer a threat to public safety and no one was injured.

The suspect was identified as 30-year-old Kyle Rideout.

RCMP say more details will be released on Wednesday.
