Canada police kill suspect in an anti-terror operation

Police have shot dead a suspect in an anti-terror operation in the Canadian province of Ontario, media reports say.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) would only say “action had been taken” against a lone suspect.

Canadian media said police had raided a property in Strathroy, about 225km (140 miles) south-west of Toronto.

They named the suspect as Aaron Driver, 24, who was arrested last year for openly supporting so-called Islamic State on social media.

Arkansas deputy sheriff shot dead, suspect arrested

An Arkansas deputy sheriff was fatally shot Wednesday morning and a local police chief was injured while responding to a disturbance call.

Sebastian County Deputy Bill Cooper, who had been shot in the neck, was pronounced dead Wednesday afternoon at Sparks Hospital in Fort Smith.

A visibly emotional Sheriff Bill Hollenbeck described Cooper, a 15-year veteran and former U.S. Marine, as “dynamic.”

“He loved his job,” Hollenbeck told a news conference. “He could’ve retired years ago. He loved this community so much he stayed on.”

Deputy Bill Cooper was shot Wednesday morning.

Billy Monroe Jones, 34, was identified as the accused gunman and taken into custody shortly before noon, nearly five hours after the shooting at Jones’ home east of Hackett, near the Oklahoma border.
