Some Strathcona County facilities are up and running again.
On Tuesday night (Nov.6), two explosions fired in the Strathcona County Community Centre's parkade. Police say their suspect, 21-year-old Kane Kosolowsky, died from a gunshot wound. No bystanders were injured.
Mayor Rod Frank said in a release that the RCMP Major Crime Unit have completed their investigation of the community centre and county hall. An initial structural survey has been conducted with plans in progress to carry out the needed repairs.
County hall is expected to open late next week. Further assessment of the community centre is necessary before a time-frame can be given.
The centre's parkade will remain secured by police with the timing of vehicle removal still unknown. People who have vehicles in the parkade are asked to leave their name and contact information with county staff at 780-417-7100.
Salisbury Composite High, St. Theresa Catholic School and the Central Learning Services Building will resume classes on Friday. Festival Place will also open.
Residents are encouraged to attend Remembrance Day services at Millennium Place rather than the county hall cenotaph this year.
Police have yet to release a motive, target or details on the explosives used in the incident.
