3 arrested in Halifax Valentine’s Day mass murder plot

RCMP have arrested three people allegedly involved in a plot to commit mass murder in Halifax on Valentine’s Day.

A U.S. woman, a Halifax man and a Cole Harbour, N.S., teen are in custody, while a fourth suspect was found dead.

Cops first responded to a weapons-related threat on Thursday morning.

They’d received information that a 19-year-old man from Timberlea, N.S., and a 23-year-old woman from Geneva, Ill., “had access to firearms and it was their intention to go to a public venue in the Halifax region … with a goal of opening fire to kill citizens, and then themselves.”
