SHERWOOD PARK, Alta. -- RCMP have identified a suspect who died after he was found in an underground parkade where two explosions occurred on Tuesday.
Kane Kosolowsky was discovered injured in a vehicle at a complex in Sherwood Park, just east of Edmonton, that houses Strathcona County's civic offices, a library and a restaurant.
The 21-year-old was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Mounties say he died of a gunshot wound, but they are not seeking any other suspects.
They say a motive remains unclear but add that Kosolowsky was not connected with any group or ideology.
The man's family says in a statement that what happened was out of character for him and they are helping with the police investigation.
RCMP Major Crimes Unit identified the male suspect in the Strathcona Community Centre event as Kane Kosolowsky; no further suspects are being sought. Investigation continues and RCMP advise there was no known threat to any school in the area. #strathco #shpk— RCMP Alberta (@RCMPAlberta) November 8, 2018
