The Winnipeg Police have released a statement after two Edmonton Police Officers were killed in the line of duty. 

Early Thursday morning the pair responded to an apartment complex where they were fatally injured. 

Several officers, along with forensic units and command post trucks were outside an apartment complex in northwest Edmonton on Thursday morning as people were quietly leaving for work and school. One of the complexes was taped off. 

"This doesn't get any easier," says Winnipeg Police on Twitter. "We share a deep sense of sadness with the family, friends and colleagues of the two Edmonton Police Service constables who lost their lives early this morning in the service of their community."

Edmonton Police Commission cancelled a public meeting that had been planned for Thursday because of the deaths. 

The cause of death has not been released. The investigation is ongoing.
