A nerve-wracking manhunt came to an end early Friday morning after police apprehended the suspect wanted in one of the worst mass shootings in the RCMP’s history that left three Mounties dead and two others wounded in Moncton, N.B.
Paul Greene, a spokesman with the RCMP, said Justin Bourque was arrested at around 12:10 a.m., bringing to a close a harrowing search that lasted nearly 30 hours.
Bourque, 24, was wanted after the shootings Wednesday evening in the northwest area of the city.
