Police Investigation reports

Officials said Wortman was wearing a police uniform and driving what appeared to be a police car, but later reported he was driving a Chevrolet sports utility vehicle in Milford, about 80 miles further south of Portapique.

Police said in a tweet: ‘To clarify, the suspect in our active shooter investigation, Gabriel Wortman, is NOT employed by the RCMP but he may be wearing an RCMP uniform.

‘He is considered armed and dangerous. If you see him, do NOT approach and call 911 immediately.’

Police Statement

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the shooting occurred in the small coastal town of Portapique, about 80 kilometers from the provincial capital of Halifax. “Gabriel Wortman, suspected of an active shooting investigation, is now in custody,” the force said in a tweet. On Saturday night, Cpl. Lisa Croteau, public information officer for the RCMP Nova Scotia, said police received a call about “a person with a firearm” around 10:30 p.m. and then “it became an active shooting investigation.” Tom Taggart, a legislator in Colchester Township, said the quiet community has been rocked. “This is an absolutely wonderful, calm and peaceful community and the idea that this could happen in our community is incredible,” Taggart said by phone from his home in Bass River, near the closure area. “People live here for peace and quiet and it is an absolute tragedy,” he said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau  Statement

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the shooting on Sunday morning during his daily briefing, saying: ‘My heart goes out to everyone affected in what is a terrible situation.

‘I want to thank the police for their hard work and people for cooperating with authorities.’
