Canadian police say mass shooting plot foiled in Nova Scotia

TORONTO - Canadian police said on Friday they foiled a plot in which at least two people allegedly planned to commit a mass shooting in the East Coast province of Nova Scotia on Valentine's Day.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement the plot involved a 19-year-old man from Timberlea, Nova Scotia, and 23-year-old woman from Geneva, Illinois.
Police said they obtained information that suggested the two had access to firearms and intended to go to a public venue in the Halifax, Nova Scotia, region on Feb. 14 to kill people, and then themselves.
The police statement did not suggest a possible motive for the shooting.
