Police in the Canadian city of Kingston say seven people died after a small plane crashed in the area. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has sent a team of four investigators to the scene of the crash, where they’re examining and documenting the wreckage.

They’ve said the plane left Markham, Ontario, and was destined for the Kingston airport, but went down just a few miles from its destination. Kingston Police Const. Ash Gutheinz said Thursday there’s “no indication” there were any survivors from the crash. All seven victims were identified as being members of the same family and the pilot, Otabek Oblokulov of Missouri City is being remembered as a pillar of the Uzbek community in Houston.
