Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expressing his shock at a shooting rampage in Langley, BC.

Two people were killed and two others were wounded before police shot David Goggin dead.

In a post on Twitter, Trudeau says his heart breaks for the victims' loved ones and communities.

BC Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth says the ``senseless act of violence'' is ``extremely disturbing.''

PM Justin Trudeau on Twitter:

I’m horrified by the news that came out of Langley, BC yesterday. My heart breaks for the victims’ loved ones and communities, and my thoughts are with the people who were injured – we’re wishing you a speedy recovery. This violence has no place in any of our communities.

Sonia Furstenau on Twitter:

My heart goes out to those affected in the #Langley shooting. The reports that the perpetrator was targeting homeless people are very disturbing.

We’ve seen the discourse around homelessness in BC veer into fear mongering and the dehumanizing of some of our most vulnerable.

Words matter - as legislators we need to talk about public safety in a way that makes everyone safer and strengthens communities. To ensure that what we do lifts all British Columbians up and leaves nobody behind.

John Horgan on Twitter:

My thoughts are with the victims of the horrific shootings in Langley & the Township of Langley today, as well as their friends, family and loved ones. This senseless act of violence against members of our community is extremely concerning & unacceptable.
