Man suspected of killing Canadian Mounties caught
MONCTON, New Brunswick (AP) - Police say the man suspected in the shooting deaths of three Royal Canadian Mounted Police was arrested unarmed and without incident earlier Friday.
Police said at a press conference that they received a tip that led them to the New Brunswick location where they found 24-year-old Justin Bourque.
Supt. Marlene Snowman says Bourque was arrested in Moncton at 12:10 a.m. without incident. She says no weapons were on him, but were found nearby. Charges will be brought later Friday.
Michelle Thibodeau says she saw the man arrested in the front yard of her home and heard the suspect say, "I'm done," before his arrest by officers with guns drawn.
RCMP Commander officer Roger Brown said identified the dead as Constables Fabrice Georges Gebordin, 45; David Ross, 32; and Douglas James Larche, 40.
