Canadian Officers Hunt Cop Killing Suspect

June 05, 2014  | 

Police have commandeered armoured Brinks trucks as they search for a gunman believed to be hidden in the woods of a Moncton subdivision Thursday morning after three RCMP officers were shot dead and two wounded the night before.

The New Brunswick city of about 70,000 is under virtual lockdown with schools, government buildings and many private businesses closed as heavily armed RCMP officers patrol the streets in the hunt for 24-year-old Justin Bourque. Bourque was last seen near a wooded area in military camouflage, carrying two high-powered rifles with high capacity magazines, a bow and a knife, the National Post reports.

Police are urging those who live in the northwest section of the sprawling city to stay indoors with their doors closed and if anyone sees Bourque to immediately call 911.
