Canadian police say they have foiled a plot to carry out a mass shooting in the Halifax area on Saturday.



Three suspects were arrested and a fourth was found dead in a suburb of the eastern city.



According to the police, at least two suspects had intended "to go to a public venue ... with a goal of opening fire to kill citizens, and then themselves".



Police officials said the motive did not appear to be terrorism, without providing further details.



That’s it for news, sports is next.
