MANILA - A Canadian man shot dead two people including a lawyer in a Philippines courtroom Tuesday, using a pistol he smuggled inside the court as he went on trial for petty mischief, police said. 

The Canadian man shot a local doctor who sued him, as well as the doctor's lawyer, and then turned the pistol on other people in the courtroom in the central city of Cebu, injuring a government prosecutor.

The suspect, who was not named, was also shot and wounded in the melee, regional police chief Marcelo Garbo said on local DZBB radio.
