Another daughter, Linnea, 19, was in Grande Prairie at the time of the shootings.

No motive was provided for the murder-suicide.

Worker killed at construction site

A worker has been killed in a highrise building construction accident in Calgary.

Emergency authorities say the man was crushed when some metal forms shifted and fell from a sling as they were being lifted by a crane.

The 27-year-old man, who assisted the crane operator with the movement of material on site, died at the scene.
