The shootings stretched across the province of Nova Scotia, beginning in Portapique, where the gunman lived, and ending at a gas station in Enfield. The man identified by police as the lone shooter worked as a denturist in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and was a New Brunswick native. He was dressed in an imitation RCMP uniform and driving a vehicle made to look like an RCMP cruiser, according to police.
RCMP Assistant Commissioner Lee Bergerman told reporters at a Sunday press conference, “Today is a devastating day for Nova Scotia and it will remain etched in the minds of many for years to come. What has unfolded overnight and into this morning is incomprehensible and many families are experiencing the loss of a loved one. That includes our own RCMP family.” She added, “As Nova Scotians, we have to do what we are known for and come together in a time of need and support each other.” Bergerman said, “The impact of this incident will extend from one end of the province to the other.”
Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil said in a statement, “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. This is one of the most senseless acts of violence in our province’s history. Words cannot console the families affected by what has transpired over the last 24 hours.”
