Ottawa's police chief is among the officers giving an update on the weekend shooting at a wedding that killed two people and injured six more.

Ottawa's police chief says the service will have a "significant update" this afternoon on last weekend's fatal wedding reception shooting.

Chief Eric Stubbs is part of a news conference called for 1 p.m. CBC is streaming it live at the top of this story.

Two Toronto men, 26-year-old Said Mohamed Ali and 29-year-old Abdishakur Abdi-Dahir, were killed and six others were injured on Sept. 2 after gunfire erupted at the Infinity Convention Centre near the Ottawa International Airport.

No arrests or suspects have been announced.

Stubbs said Tuesday police believe it was a targeted shooting and there is no indication it was hate-motivated.

Ottawa Mayor Mark Sutcliffe has said his thoughts are with people living in the area and argued the killings back up his push to devote more police resources to fighting gun crime.
