Calgary police said that a son of a police officer stabbed five students of the University of Calgary to death early Tuesday.

This is the worst mass murder in Calgary and it happened less than a week after a mass stabbing in Pittsburgh.

The victims were Joshua Hunter, Kaitlin Perras, ​Jordan Segura, Lawerence Hong and Zackariah Rathwell.

The incident happened during a party celebrating the students’ last day in classes in the northwest residential neighbourhood of Brentwood.

The suspect, 22-year-old Matthew Douglas de Grood is a son of a veteran Calgary police officer, Insp. Doug de Grood.

The suspect was arrested after he was tracked down and bitten by a police dog and his parents was heart-broken when they heard the news.

Late Tuesday, police said they charged Matthew Douglas de Grood with five counts of first-degree murder.

On April 9, 2014, 22 people were injured in a mass stabbing at the Franklin Regional High School, Pennsylvania.
