Emergency crews are dealing with a shooting at the Peace Arch Border crossing.
A Canadian Border Services Agency officer was shot in the neck shortly before 2pm and the man who shot her then shot himself in the head.
Authorities have now confirmed that man is dead.
The border guard has been airlifted to hospital; her exact condition is not known.
Callers to CKNW say they heard two shots were fired, and then they heard the woman scream out and slump to the ground.
They say the shooter was in a white, 12 passenger van with tinted windows.
CKNW reporter Marcella Bernardo is on the way to the scene and will have updates throughout the afternoon on The World Today on CKNW.
