SHERWOOD PARK - RCMP have identified a suspect who died after he was found in an underground parkade where two explosions occurred on Tuesday.

Kane Kosolowsky was discovered injured in a vehicle at a complex in Sherwood Park, just east of Edmonton, that houses Strathcona County's civic offices, a library and a restaurant.

The 21-year-old was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Mounties say he died of a gunshot wound, but they are not seeking any other suspects.

They say a motive remains unclear but add that Kosolowsky was not connected with any group or ideology.

The man's family says in a statement that what happened was out of character for him and they are helping with the police investigation.

"We, the family of Kane Kosolowsky, are shocked and devastated by the unfortunate incident that took place on November 6, 2018," the statement reads.

"We are working in cooperation with the RCMP to assist in any capacity with the investigation. We are thankful that there were no other persons harmed in this unexpected incident. The events that occurred are totally out of character for Kane and we trust that the authorities will continue a thorough investigation to provide the answers we are all seeking. 

"At this time we ask for privacy," the statement concludes.
