Ms. McLean said her partner had planned to retire in the next six to seven years. "I was just absorbing the whole thing", she said, noting her cat also knew something was wrong.

The shooting occurred as many people, such as local resident Rachel LeBlanc, were on their way to work.

CBC reported that police evacuated an apartment block near the man's house shortly after 9 am.

One block down the road from 200 block area is a small strip-mall with a Subway and a Tim Hortons.

"These things need to happen in the proper sequence. Now it happened here", Gamon said with a sad shrug.

It is rare in Canada for police officers to be killed in the line of duty.

Burns went into policing after earning a bachelor of arts degree from Fredericton's St. Thomas University with a major in criminology in 2014, according to city records.

"It's not something that we expect in Fredericton to wake up and hear about".
