18 people in Canadian Province of Nova Scotia massacred by a gunman

A man impersonated as a police officer made an onslaught in the Canadian Province of Nova Scotia, where 18 people were murdered along with a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

The Chief Superintendent of RCMP, Chris Leather reported that the accused has left the sufferers disbanded at different crime spots as he went berserk with a gun at Portapique. The gunman was later recognised as Gabriel Wortman, aged 51 who died after he was taken into custody. Though the reason of his death has still not been revealed.

The Canadian history experienced a similar atrocious massacre in Ècole Polytechnique, Montreal in 1989 where 14 women had been shot before the shooter committed suicide.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his grief in this situation of indiscriminate killing of innocent people. He also offered his sincere condolences to the families who have lost their near and dear ones and also to the RCMP family.

Leather gave an account of the mishap later mentioning that the suspect went around the Northern area and described his act as nothing but committing homicides.
After the police received a call from one of the residents at Portapique, they started chasing the suspect and found out him in a half- dressed police attire. He steered a vehicle that resembled an “RCMP cruiser” . Leather informed the media that while they drove towards the town, several structures were found on fire.

The police is still trying to find out if there are other casualties in the area other than those already reported.
