Story still developing at time of writing. 

 

People on 4Chan are claiming to be from that area and posting photos, so no idea if these are genuine or not.

That's a LOT of blood.

Actually no, it isn't. Seen much much worse, won't go into the gory details. Not all gunshot wounds bleed a lot externally.

Again guys, use the Big Gun Control Debate to argue about gun control.

 

Quoted so it's not missed again.

 

Thanks

He was caught.

 


Justin Bourque, the suspected shooter behind the deaths of three RCMP officers, has been arrested.

 

Mounties confirmed early Friday the 24-year-old Moncton man was captured at 12:10 a.m. local time. A lockdown order for area residents has also been lifted.

Bourque's arrest concludes a massive manhunt conducted after three Mounties were shot and killed in Moncton Wednesday.

Two other officers sustained non-life threatening injuries ? one has since been discharged from hospital. The identities of the dead and surviving Mounties have not been released.

 

Moncton resident Michelle Thibodeau was at her Hildegard home with her family when Bourque was arrested in her backyard, she told CTV News.

She noticed a SWAT team driving by when all of a sudden they headed toward the back of the house, screaming, "Come out with your hands up!"

Bourque then emerged with his hands up and said, "I'm done."

 

Police kept a gun pointed at the suspect as they arrested him. They also searched Thibodeau's yard for other firearms, she said.

"We were all shaking, it was a very scary moment."

Thibodeau said the RCMP were unwavering throughout the manhunt, adding, "I think we will honour them forever in this community, we always have and we always will."

 

New Brunswick Premier David Alward issued a statement after news of Bourque's arrest, praising the RCMP for their dedication and strength ? and extended condolences to grieving families.

Glad this is over, I don't wish anyone to experience their town under siege. The RCMP demonstrated a lot of professionalism in dealing with the issue, although he gave himself in to them, they did indeed keep the situation as safe as could be.
