3 Canadian Officers Shot, Killed by Gunman

June 05, 2014  | 

Three police officers were shot dead and two others injured in a rare case of gun violence in the east coast Canadian province of New Brunswick, officials said.

Authorities were searching for a suspect, reports CBS News.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Constable Damien Theriault said police responded to a call Wednesday about an armed man in the north end of the city of Moncton at 7:30 p.m. Three of the responding officers were killed and two sustained non-life threatening injuries and were in stable condition.

Police said they were looking for 24-year-old Justin Bourque of Moncton - a city of about 69,000 people about 95 miles northeast of the capital of St. John, New Brunswick. The police force tweeted an image of a suspect wearing military camouflage and wielding two guns.

R.I.P. my brothers, & may SWIFT JUSTICE come to the man that killed you.

Sorry to hear of more officers losing their life to an anti-social extremeist.
When is our judicial system going to realize that Law Enforcement is protecting their families also. I fear this is going to get way worse in the near future because "swift justice" is no longer swift!
Sympathy to these officer's families, friends, and fellow officers!

Lets not confuse a legal system with a justice system, as they're no longer synonymous. The thoughts and prayers of your brothers and sisters in E Division are with the families of the fallen, those who were injured, and those still on the job. Stay safe.

I wonder if the illegal confiscation of firearms played a role. Hope Borque cleans up Canada, then makes his way south. Justice delayed is justice denied!

My prayers for my brother officers killed/injured in that tragic shooting. I hope no innocents or other mounties are killed or injured. Time now to take down the coward who did this.

May Mr. Bouroque be put to death by firing squad and not let to be the cowards way out by killing himself. Rest in peace Mounties. We will catch this murderer.

I wonder how the townspeople felt when they were told to stay inside and lock their doors, with no way of protecting themselves with a firearm...since that goverment made legal gunowners - ILLEGAL. So from now on..no Mexico nor Canadian crossings for me.!
