A mountainous area in Langley, Vancouver, Metro Vancouver, states that suspects have been detained after several people were shot dead.

Police said in a news release that they responded to reports this morning that several victims were fired in several different locations.

According to police, a mobile phone emergency alert was issued to local residents when they were alert, and a second alert was issued that the suspect was detained about an hour later.

Police say they are detaining a man they believe is responsible for the shooting.

They say they are conducting active research in several areas of Langley City and the town of Langley, some of which are not open to the public.
