    ENFIELD, Nova Scotia (AP) — Canadian police said at least 10 people were killed after a 51-year-old man went on a shooting rampage across the northern part of the province of Nova Scotia.

    The man was identified as Gabriel Wortman. He was arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in a gas station in Enfield, Nova Scotia, northwest of downtown Halifax. Police later announced that he had died.

    “In excess of 10 people have been killed,” RCMP Chief Superintendent Chris Leather said. "We believe it to be one person who is responsible for all the killings and that he alone moved across the northern part of the province and committed what appears to be several homicides.”

    Brian Sauvé, President of National Police Federation union, said a police officer was among those killed in a shooting and another was injured.

    Police have not provided a motive for the attack. By late morning, there were half a dozen police vehicles at the scene. Yellow police tape surrounded the gas pumps, and a large silver-colored SUV was being investigated by police.

    The incident started in the small, rural town of Portapique, with police advising residents to lock their homes and stay in their basements.

    Several building fires were reported by residents as well, but police didn’t immediately confirm details.

    “I never imagined when I went to bed last night that I would wake up to the horrific news that an active shooter was on the loose in Nova Scotia," Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil. “This is one of the most senseless acts of violence in our province’s history.”

    He said it was an additional “heavy burden” amid efforts to contain the new coronavirus, and that police will announce further details later.

    Police stated earlier Sunday the suspect was driving a car that looked like a police vehicle and wearing a police uniform, but later said he was “believed to be driving a small, silver Chevrolet SUV,” traveling southbound on a highway. They said he is not an RCMP employee or officer.

    Cpl. Lisa Croteau, a spokeswoman with the provincial force, said police received a call about “a person with firearms” at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday and the investigation “evolved into an active shooting investigation.”

    “My heart goes out to everyone affected in what is a terrible situation,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said.

    Christine Mills, a resident of the town, said it had been a frightening night for the small town, with armed officers patrolling the streets. In the morning, helicopters flew overhead searching for the suspect.

    “I feel better now to know he’s in custody," Mills said. “It’s nerve-wracking because you don’t know if somebody has lost their mind and is going to beat in your front door.”

    Tom Taggart, a lawmaker who represents the Portapique area in the Municipality of Colchester, said the quiet community has been shaken.

    “This is just an absolutely wonderful, peaceful quiet community and the idea that this could happen in our community is unbelievable," Taggart said by phone from his home in Bass River, near the lockdown area.

    Croteau confirmed a tweet saying there are “multiple victims” but could not provide a number or say whether any people had been killed.

    A Gabriel Wortman is listed as a denturist in Dartmouth, according to the Denturist Society of Nova Scotia website. A suspect photo issued by the RCMP matches video footage of a man being interviewed about dentures by CTV Atlantic in 2014.

    Mills also said that Wortman was known locally as a denturist who divided his time between a residence in Halifax and a residence in Portapique.

    Taggart said he didn’t know Wortman well, but spoke to him a few times when he telephoned about municipal issues.

    Taggart described knowing Wortman’s ``lovely big home″ on Portapique Beach Road. He said Wortman owned a few other properties and was believed to divide his time between Portapique and his business in Dartmouth.

    I don't know what to say on this, but I do hope that justice will be done in this case.

    This is breaking news, that means that there may be more information to come. When I get it, you will get it here.

    Until then...

    From REUTERS News Staff wrote:OTTAWA (Reuters) - The death toll from the worst mass shooting in Canadian history has risen to 18, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday, including a police officer and the gunman.

    "A gunman claimed the lives of at least 18 people, among them a woman in uniform whose job it is to protect lives even if it endangers her own," Trudeau told reporters, referring to Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Constable Heidi Stevenson, who was killed on Sunday in the shooting spree in the Atlantic province of Nova Scotia.

    "It happened in small towns: Portapique, Truro, Milford and Enfield, places where people have deep roots, places where people know their neighbors and look out for one another," Trudeau said. "Now these communities are in mourning and Canada is in mourning with them."

    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the gunman, 51-year-old Gabriel Wortman, who worked as a denturist, appeared at one stage to have been wearing part of a police uniform. He had also painstakingly disguised his car to look like a police cruiser.

    And here I thought the United States was bad when it came to mass shootings. If anything, we're the most frequent. I haven't heard anything about Canada dealing with something like this until now. This is horrible, and I hope Wortman gets the justice due to him. In the meantime, my deepest condolences go to the families who lost loved ones in the wake of this senseless tragedy.

    Just Saying.
