In one of the most horrifying mass murders in history, a 51-year-old white man went on a rampage lasting almost 12 hours, killing 16 people such as a police officer at the state of Nova Scotia. The killing spree, which started on Saturday night, finished on Sunday morning once the shot, recognized as Gabriel Wortman, was gunned down by police in an experience.
While no motive has been credited to the killing spree, authorities don’t think that this was a random act as Wortman was dressed in the uniform of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police or RCMP and, at a stage, was thought to be driving a car camouflaged as a police cruiser.
RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki said researchers will”need to do a great deal of work on locating the inspiration, a great deal of history, a great deal of profiling-type events along with a great deal of crime scene processing,” according to CBC News.
Wortman’s rampage started at about 11.30 pm in the township of Portapique, also finished 12 hours after at a gas pump in the town of Enfield, after a chase from the local RCMP with officials shooting upon the defendant. Wortman is thought to have possessed a denture practice and possessions in Halifax, the capital of this state, and Portapique in which the rampage began.
He also added, “Our hearts go out to the men and women who’ve lost family members, and also to the RCMP family mourning a fallen officer”
Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil expressed his anguish over the catastrophe calling it”among the most senseless acts of violence within our state’s history.”
