This will be a pretty brief diary as the news is still coming in.,
3 members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been killed in the city of Moncton, New Brunswick. Two more are in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The shootings began around supper time and the suspect has not been apprehended. He has been identified as a 24 year old citizen of the town named Justin Bourque.
Looking at his Facebook page, he's a gun enthusiast who hates the police.
Emergency Teams are on their way from the neighbouring provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island to help with the search.
A good chunk of the city is in lockdown with people being warned to stay in their homes and be in their basements.
He seems to be in a wooded area that is quite large to search and there are a lot of subdivisions in the area. There are also big box stores that are locked up, with people still in them according to reports.
I'm sick to my stomach.
