EDMONTON — Police have identified the eight people who were gunned down in Edmonton earlier this week by a man who then killed himself.

They say Phu Lam shot his wife, his son and his niece, along with four others, at a home on the north side.

Investigators believe the 53-year-old man then drove to a south-end home and shot another woman dead.

Court documents show Lam’s wife (Thuy-Tien Truong) testified in 2012 that he planned to kill her and her family but wasn’t able to buy a gun.

She told court her husband grew upset when he found out their son was not his biological child.

An emergency protection order was granted but revoked two months later.
