WILNO, Ontario (AP) — Residents of a small eastern Ontario town were ordered to seek shelter on Tuesday as police combed the area for a gunman believed to have killed one person. Police later said they arrested a 57-year-old suspect in Ottawa, about 111 miles away.

Ontario Provincial Police officers were called to a location in Wilno, Ontario around 9 a.m. and found one person dead.

Their investigation then took them to a home some distance away, triggering a search for the suspect which led to several businesses and schools being placed on lockdown.
