They were some sort of neighbours, or at least the shooters estranged wife was, basically a spat over a fence and some rocks according to the local Penticton news.

but it seems odd that his estranged wife is hysterical over the neighbours but he kills them.

police also do not intend to release the victims' names. ever it seems.
The Penticton RCMP say they will not be releasing the names of the victims in Monday’s quadruple homicide, "because there is no operational requirement to further" the investigation.
John Brittain, 68, a former City of Penticton engineer is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and one count of second-degree murder.
The indictment states that the first count involves the shooting of R.W., identified by family as Rudi Winter, who was killed while pruning a tree on Lakeview Street.
Court documents identify the remaining three victims as B.W., S.W. and D.K.
Land title records for the two homes involved in the shooting scene on Cornwall Drive indicate one of the homes is owned by Susan and Barry Wonch. The other home involved in the crime scene is owned by a woman named Darlene Knippelberg.

I thought I heard the names mentioned last night on Global, but perhaps not. It was the couple.
