Police have identified the suspect in Tuesday night's explosions in the Strathcona County Community Centre parkade.
 
Kane Kosolowsky was found with severe injuries in a vehicle in the parkade and later died in hospital. RCMP said in a news release on Thursday that an autopsy showed the 21 year old died from a gunshot wound. No further suspects are being sought.
 
The Kosolowsky family said in a statement: We, the family of Kane Kosolowsky, are shocked and devastated by the unfortunate incident that took place on November 6, 2018. We are working in cooperation with the RCMP to assist in any capacity with the investigation. We are thankful that there were no other persons harmed in this unexpected incident.  The events that occurred are totally out of character for Kane and we trust that the authorities will continue a thorough investigation to provide the answers we are all seeking. At this time we ask for privacy.
 
Strathcona County Community Centre's parkade will remain secured by police.
 
The area outside of the parkade has been deemed safe by the Explosive Disposal Unit and RCMP Special Tactical Operations unit. Strathcona County has elected to keep the community centre closed.
 
Police say further investigation around the explosions inside the parkade area may take several days.
 
An investigation continues into the motive of the crime. There was no known threat to any schools in the surrounding areas.
