(Newser) – A university shooting in Canada overnight left three people dead, Global Edmonton reports. Police were called to the HUB Mall on the University of Alberta campus just after midnight today after the armed robbery attempt, the Edmonton Journal adds. The victims are believed to be two male employees and one female employee of an armored vehicle company; a third male was reportedly injured.

Few people were in the building at the time; the mall has shops and student living quarters, CBC reports. "I heard pop, pop, pop, about eight of them," says one person who was studying; another student reports hearing two loud cracks around 11:30pm last night. Some students reported being on lockdown, but the HUB Mall has now reportedly been cleared and secured, though the apparently lone shooter remains at large. AM 630 calls this Edmonton's deadliest armed robbery.
