Mother of suspect in Canada killings pleads for his surrender

The mother of a man accused of killing three people during a robbery attempt at a Canadian university pleaded for him to surrender.

"Trav, as your mother, I ask that you come forward now and take responsibility for your actions," said Sandy Baumgartner, according to the Edmonton Police Service.

"Please Travis, I love you, and I'm pleading with you with all of my heart, to end this without further bloodshed. As your mother, I promise to you now, that I will be there by your side to support you."

The mother was referring to Travis Brandon Baumgartner, who Edmonton police say is behind the Friday robbery of an armored vehicle at the University of Alberta. The shooting left three security employees dead and a fourth critically injured.

    I disagree with everyone else. Run Travis. You already killed three people, your life is ruined forever and since you're going to serve a life sentance, you might as well try to see if you can get away at this point.

    This was a very sad piece of local news to wake up to yesterday. It doesn't happen often in Edmonton.

    Arrested by border patrol. Good work guys.

    Too bad we don't have the death penalty in Canada. Thanks Trudeau.
