The University of Prince Edward Island has lowered the flags in front of Kelley Memorial Building and at UPEI Alumni Canada Games Place to half-mast to honour the two Fredericton Police officers and two civilians who were killed during a shooting incident this morning in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Dr. Alaa Abd-El-Aziz, President and Vice-Chancellor, said, “On behalf of the UPEI community and along with other Maritimers, I offer our sincere condolences to the City of Fredericton and especially to the families and friends of the victims of today’s tragedy.”

“We also extend our thanks and support to all first responders, including our own UPEI Security Services team, as they grapple with the loss of their colleagues in New Brunswick. We are reminded, even more so today, that every time they begin a shift, women and men put themselves in harm’s way to protect and serve our communities.”
