Manhunt Underway for Gunman in Canada

Canada

(CNN) — In a country often stereotyped for being too genteel, the Canadian city of Moncton prides itself on a special distinction: It was named the most polite.

So what happened here Wednesday seems unimaginable to residents.

A man dressed in fatigues and carrying a rifle went on a rampage, killing three police officers and wounding two others.

Police posted to social media a photograph of a man dressed in fatigues, carrying what appeared to be a rifle.

Thursday morning, the shooter was still on the loose.

Residents were asked to keep their doors locked and their outside lights on, as helicopters hovered overhead and the hunt for the gunman continued.

Police say they know who the suspect is: 24-year-old Justin Bourque of Moncton.

What they don’t know — or haven’t disclosed — is what prompted the attacks.
