Worst case of violence in 30 years. One police officer dead and 13 more with probably more to be identified. All those communities involved and extended families and friends must be just devastated. How tragic.

The disturbing thing is the fact the killer was wearing an RCMP uniform and driving an ex-RCMP vehicle he made look like a cruiser.

A lot of those smaller communities will be struggling with this and it will take some time to sort out all the details. People are struggling as it is living within the confines of a pandemic and need support from others. This is just horrific.

Fourteen people dead that they know of so far.

So tragic!

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-sco ... -1.5537598


<snip> In an update on Sunday evening, Nova Scotia RCMP first said at least 10 people were killed in several locations across the province, including a veteran RCMP officer. But the toll rose to at least 13.

Police said there may be more victims who have not been discovered yet and their investigation continues.

Later on Sunday evening, RCMP Commissoner Brenda Lucki said police know of at least 13 victims, besides the shooter. She also confirmed the incident is not terror-related at this time.

RCMP identified the gunman as Gabriel Wortman, 51. His rampage began late Saturday night in the small community of Portapique, N.S. He led police on a chase Sunday morning along one of the province's busiest highways.

The chase ended near a gas station about 35 kilometres north of Halifax in Enfield, N.S., around 11:40 a.m. local time. Police confirmed Sunday evening that the gunman was dead.<snip>


Here is a timeline as of this time, may be up dated. Something this complex may not be completed for sometime.

Even Fox picked up the story. They claim that Wortman was in custody and mysteriously died while in custody.

Personally glad he’s dead but would have been nice to know a motive. Hopefully they find something in the investigation that sheds some light on this sick :cuss:
