Royal Canadian Mounted Police continue to comb the streets and woods of Moncton, New Brunswick, in search of a gunman who killed three officers last night and wounded two others.
The RCMP has identified the suspect as 24-year-old Justin Bourque (bork) and released a picture showing him wearing camouflage and carrying two high-powered rifles. Police say he was spotted three times this morning, once coming out of a wooded area.
The manhunt has emptied roads and kept families hunkered in their homes in the normally tranquil city on Canada's east coast.
Investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting and police say Bourque was not known to them prior to last night's incident.
The homicides are the first this year in Moncton, a city of 69,000 people where gun violence is rare. The RCMP says the city had no homicides last year.
