London Ontario - a nice place to raise a family

The fun just never stops here in Gundon.

LONDON, Ont. (CP) - At least two people were killed and two police officers wounded in a shooting that left "multiple deceased persons" in a home on a quiet street near the city's downtown early Monday.

Police said they received a 911 call from a child at about 2:30 a.m. reporting an apparent assault.

When officers responded to the home, they were shot at several times. Two officers were reportedly hit in the upper body and taken to London Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"The officers, as they approached the residence, were fired upon - they were shot and received non-life threatening injuries," Const. Jeff Arbing told London radio station CFPL.

He also told reporters there are "multiple deceased persons" in the home, but would not be more specific.

Well, London's city council keeps whining about being a major city . . . what more proof do you need of great city status than regular shootings, insufferable pollution and a rotting downtown core?
