For 12 hours earlier, the police in Canada had an eventful day while chasing after a gunman. Although the escapade ended and the gunman has also been pronounced dead.
Citizen of the small town of Portapique was earlier advised to stay indoors on Saturday for their safety.
The attack began on Saturday when the Police claimed the suspect was driving what looks like a police car. The gunman was said to have shot several people across Nova Scotia which perhaps means the initial death toll announced might not be the actual numbers as more bodies could still be discovered.
In a tweet by the Nova Scotia police, the gunman was identified as a 51-year-old Caucasian, GabrielWortman.
Although the way the gunman was killed was not stated by the police, the gunman who dressed like a police officer was also in what looks like a police car.
However, "There's one difference between his car and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police vehicles: the car # [registration plate]. The suspect's car is 28B11, behind the rear passenger window. If you see 28B11 call 911 immediately," they tweeted on Sunday.
The gunman later changed cars to drive a "small silver Chevrolet SUV", police added.
None the less, the gunman has been killed which stopped the rampage. However, the situation surrounding his death was not revealed.
