    Default Multiple Victims in Nova Scotia Shooting

    Crazy... One RCMP dead too.
    RCMP going to have a news conference at 3 pm for further details.

    Hits a bit close to home as I live in a similar type of community to that one in Alberta where you have a sense of safety and you kinda know everyone. Most people tend to leave their doors unlocked. Couldn't fathom to think this could happen but very well could as almost everyone has firearms.

    Wild story here. This seems like a well executed plan by this guy and clearly took some time to scheme up. I mean, the decaling of his own car, aquireing the uniform etc... Reports of multiple execution style killings in people's homes and people he pulled over. Just insane.

    13 victims at this point and he's dead also = 14. Somewhat remote area where he started killing people, so they could be finding more yet if there are homes in off the road a bit or something.

    Was mostly described as a good guy before this. Here he is giving a cancer patient new teeth.

    I believe he lived in the area where the initial calls came in from - portapique.. And had some rentals around the area.

    - Cops get called last night to multiple shots fired, and several places on fire.
    - Sounds like he then shot the lady cop that responded and took off
    - he had made his own replica cop car, and had some sort of RCMP looking outfit
    - he went around various communities shooting as he went it seems, and changed vehicles along the way - possibly shooting others and taking their vehicle
    - pulled over at a gas station and pulled up to the pump is where he was finally killed by cops.

    Must have been nearly 12 hours after he had started when he was killed.

    Reports he had some beef with the cops at his business using his parking lot to go to a coffee shop next door, he had told them to leave multiple times, and had blocked them in before. Not sure that has anything to do with his residence community though, or this event at all.
    Also stories he aspired to be a cop in the past.

    I'm hearing there are a couple of small children killed also.

    Yea thats pretty crazy, but not entirely unexpected as we average a regular/statistical number of mass shootings in Canada.

    Wonder if he was targeting people specifically, or was it random?

    This is seriously messed. Absolutely, all mass killings are messed, but this one is really odd.

    I have tried to figure the reasoning behind the whole cop outfit and car thing. It was all very deliberate that he appeared like a cop, and that takes a lot of effort and planning. Since there are stories that he aspired to be a cop I imagine that may have been why he had the disguise in the first place. Regardless, he must have figured it would make it easier to carry out his plan in some way.

    Then there is the fact that he seemed to have a solid business and life, and was by some accounts a decent guy. (Or an "angel" by the one patient's account) But then all of a sudden he snaps and ends up killing all these people? RIP. Apparently it may have started targeted, but likely ended up random.

    Will be interested to hear if and when the details emerge as to what really happened. This is a weird one.

    As a side note, I'm glad we live in a country where an event like this is still considered shocking.

    Not entirely unexpected? It's the worst mass shooting in Canadian history.

    You got that "obvious" deduction over a simple comment like that? Bravo with the holier-than-thou attitude.

    Sound's like 2 federal Correctional officers were also killed. Seeing quite a few buddies on Facebook sharing information just not sure how accurate. Probably get more information in the coming days here on victims. What a terrible day.

    Yeah I was hearing that info from the early hours of chatter. Also see a teacher was killed, & I know EMS showed up at one place, having to deal with dead adults while finding a couple of children still alive.

    Also saw a guy from Ontario was posting on FB that he couldn't reach his parents in the area. He's since posted he just found out their house burned down and they are dead. He was asking if someone could go try to find them as they weren’t answering their phones

    More details here,

    https://torontosun.com/news/local-ne...and-calculated

    'The mass shooting happened on the April 19th anniversaries of the Oklahoma bombing in 1995 that killed 168 and the fiery end of the standoff in Waco, Texas, in 1993,'

    Yes, we have had many in the past - and will continue to have more in the future. There has been an increase in these events, especially the last 10 years.

    Assault-style gun laws will make no difference - esp. when the perp had 12 hours for eg.

    Yes, people are really that dumb. MH cases are a serious, serious problem in Canada on so many levels, and asking how someone could possibly act this way is pure adult ignorance.

    As someone posted, undiagnosed cases are also a huge factor.

    I agree MH cases is a huge problem.

    On a somewhat unrelated note, I think one thing people glance over is they acknowledge it's a problem, but not understand fully there is differing degrees as well as tolerances, no different than physical ailments. Someone with a sore leg or stomachache might take work off, while one may plow through it. Whether it is mental or physical, you're going to have different tolerances. I guess my point is that we always talk about the stigma of mental health, but it should still apply to physical attributes too. Like someone who uses a minor physical pain as an excuse, there are a lot of people who use "mental illness" as a scapegoat too. In an ideal world, both stigmas would be gone, but such is life (for now)...

    The whole world of mental health is a quagmire, very complicated...

    agreed - there is no reliable method to predict 100% of the time if someone is going to snap and kill themselves, or kill others. MH can manifest in completely illogical behaviour.
