Man suspected of killing Canadian Mounties caught

Police: Suspect In Canadian Manhunt 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.

Not just "gun control", but weapon control. If one person wants to harm another, anything at hand can be used. Think about the knives used in China or Murrysville, PA to assault people. Baseball bats, clubs, shovels, other garden tools or household implements can be used as deadly weapons.

Guns, knives, baseball bats, etc., do not kill people, PEOPLE kill people.

Now he will live out his life at the expense of the Canadian tax payer. He gets to live, not so for the three he killed. Room and board for the rest of his life. They need to beat the SH*T out of this POS and then cut his head off. OH wait no death penalty in Canada rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ight.

Beat him near death then, let him heal and do it again. Over and over and be sure in his room he has lots of rope so he can cut out when he has had enough. But then some people get off on pain, so what then?

There !!! you see ! GUN CONTROL WORKS ! it stops the mass shootings and keeps the people safe. All those Canadians locked their doors and were totally protected by the RCMP, while they serached for the shooter. Of course in the US, armed residents would have probably taken the nut job out for the cops, but that would be too much like RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS, not SUBJECTS.

What a shame that he said "I'm done". They could have shot him on the spot and saved everyone the grief and expense of trial and jail time after.

Wait until you hear both sides of the story. Maybe the cops did him dirty, it's not unheard of as you know.

I hope the Canadian Government has the death penalty. The US needs to take a hint from them We have no room on this planet for those that will kill Police Officials. That killer should have been taken out when they found him. Save that Provence a lot of money.

Speaking as a Canadian, this is one of the times I wish we had the death penalty.

People don't just get this whacked out at 24. Start looking at this family life and I bet there were many signs/symptoms going way back. Maybe start punishing parents when their "children" get in serious trouble then leads to a horrendous incident like this. Death penalty won't work if you have wimps like we do in Oregon. Our governor swore to uphold the laws of the state then commuted the death penalty for a prisoner who wanted to die...and deserved it too.

Canada has some of the most restrictive gun control laws on the books. How could this have happened?
