17 Killed in Nova Scotia Shooting, Deadliest in Canadian History
RCMP say 17 people are confirmed dead after a man dressed as a police officer went on a shooting rampage in northern Nova Scotia.
The victims include RCMP Const. Heidi Stevenson, a 23-year member of the force and mother of two.
Police say the gunman disguised himself as an officer in uniform at one point and mocked up a car to make it look like an RCMP cruiser.
The rampage began late Saturday night and continued Sunday with victims shot in multiple locations and a number of fires set.
Police said the suspect, 51-year-old Gabriel Wortman, was killed after being intercepted by officers at a truck stop in Enfield, Nova Scotia.
TORONTO (AP) — Canadian police say at least 10 people are dead after a shooting rampage across the province of Nova Scotia.
The suspect was identified as Gabriel Wortman and authorities said he disguised himself as a police officer in uniform at one point and mocked up a car to make it seem like a Royal Canadian Mounted Police cruiser.
He was arrested by the RCMP Sunday in a gas station in Enfield, Nova Scotia, northwest of Halifax. Police later said he had died.
Leather said they don't have a final death count. "It almost certainly will be more than 10. How much more than 10 I do not know."
