The Police Chief for the City of Fredericton has sent off an open letter to everyone thanking them for everything following the tragic shooting deaths of four people earlier this month, including two of her own Constables.
Leanne Fitch says the Fredericton Police and the RCMP are still working very hard to try a and piece together why this happened.

Chief Fitch says to the families and friends of Donnie Robichaud and Bobbie Lee Wright, the two civilians who were gunned down, they will not be forgotten, to the residents of Brookside Drive who were forced to flee their homes during and in the aftermath of the shooting, she says counselling services are available for them if warranted.
Fitch also thanked all the police and first responders from across North America who came to the Aitken Centre for Saturday’s regimental funeral fallen Constables Robb Costello and Sara Burns.
And finally, Fitch thanked the citizens of Fredericton and neighbouring communities for their gestures of kindness and says Monday is a new day, a day to start the healing of all of us together as a community.
