Further updates: The crime scene was a house, and the shooting has nothing to do with national security.

"When officers arrived on scene inside the residence they found four individuals who were the victims of gunshot wounds, one succumbed to his injuries inside the residence. Two others were transported to hospital, one to CHEO," Acting Insp. Francois D'Aoust said.

No arrests have been made in the case. Police say "this is not considered an active shooter situation, but the suspect remains at large and is not in custody."
