Nova Scotia Rampage Is Worst Shooting Spree In Canadian History

There are 18 victims say the RCMP, with some 16 crime scenes still under investigation.

The horrific rampage in Nova Scotia, in which a man dressed as a police officer driving a car that looked like a police cruiser traveled across the province murdering people, is now the worst mass shooting in modern Canadian history.

There are at least 17 victims, and 16 total crime scenes.

The number of victims may rise, as there are reports of houses being burned down, and authorities saying there are bodies inside.

The gunman was killed by police near a gas station.

Among the victims was Heidi Stevenson, who served 23 years in the Nova Scotia RCMP, and died in the line of duty as she ran towards danger.

Canadian political leaders responded to the horrific violence:

“A senseless tragedy occurred in Nova Scotia this weekend. My prayers are with the family and friends of those who lost their lives, including the RCMP officer reportedly killed in the line of duty, and the other officer who was shot and injured. I am thankful for their service.”

“Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the shooting in Nova Scotia. To the Portapique community, we’re keeping all of you in our thoughts. And on behalf of all Canadians, I want you to know that we’re here for you – and we’ll be here for you in the days and weeks ahead.”

“We are all struggling with the heartbreaking news out of Portapique, N.S.

Our hearts go out to families and loved ones reeling from this senseless violence & loss of life.

We’d like to thank first responders & we send all of our love and support to the community of Portapique.”

All Canadians are united in praying for the people of Nova Scotia, and honouring the police officers who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
