Randall Steven Shepherd, Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath charged in Halifax shooting plot - Nova Scotia - CBC News
Police have charged two people with conspiracy to commit murder in the case of a foiled plot to kill a large number of people at the Halifax Shopping Centre in the city's west end.
American Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath from Geneva, Illinois, 23, and Randall Steven Shepherd from Halifax, 20, have been charged.
A third person, a 17-year-old male from Cole Harbour, has been released without charges. At this time, police say there is no evidence to link him to the charges before the courts, but the investigation is ongoing.
Officers seized three long-barrelled rifles from the Timberlea home.
Souvannarath was arrested at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport upon arriving in Canada early Friday morning, at around 2 a.m. Sheppard, who was there to meet her, was also arrested.
Nova Scotia RCMP Commanding Officer Brian Brennan said a Crime Stoppers tip from Canada helped them foil the mass shooting, but wouldn't provide more information about where the information came from.
