Police were called to a home-based daycare in Gatineau earlier this morning after reports of gunshots—and about 20 police vehicles arrived in the residential area.

None of the 53 children at the daycare were harmed and the police confirm that all children are safe.

UPDATE: The suspect was found dead, lying on the floor with a hunting shotgun beside him. Another male, who worked at the daycare, was found dead as well. The police are investigating whether the cause of the shooting might be a couple's recent separation.
