  • A tribute to the victims who were killed in Portapique N.S

It wasn't until Wortman's girlfriend escaped into the woods and contacted police, that they learned of the fourth vehicle.

Surveillance footage captures Gabriel Wortman putting on a protective vest during his shooting rampage in Nova Scotia.

In an update provided by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) on Friday, Superintendent Darren Campbell called those bystanders killed trying to help others "heroes".

Her added that Wortman's girlfriend emerged from hiding in the woods, called 911 and gave police detailed information about the suspect including that he was driving a mock police auto and was in police uniform. "Those are extremely important questions that I know will be addressed through the investigation's conclusions". Kennedy says, despite the overwhelming sadness he and other officers feel, they continue to find comfort in their emergency services colleagues.

The details of the gunman's assault on his girlfriend Saturday are the latest to emerge about the chaos that ensued as police sought the gunman as he went about rural Nova Scotia killing people in five communities and setting homes on fire.

Thirteen bodies were found inside and outside of homes in Portapique, authorities said.

The police said they took a 26-year-old man into custody without incident, and an airsoft pistol was found in the vehicle belonging to one of the men.

They searched for the suspect overnight. The occupants called 911 and confirmed the suspect was armed and was driving what looked like a police auto. "That could well have been the catalyst of events".

That came in addition to an earlier witness - wounded by a gunshot blast as Wortman drove by - telling investigators he'd been shot by someone driving a vehicle that resembled a police auto.

In the latest case, the outbreak aboard the Kidd took place while the vessel was on a counter-narcotics mission in the Caribbean. So far, one of the sailors has died of "COVID-related complications" at the intensive care unit of the US Naval Hospital in Guam.

John Hudson, who had known the shooter for about 18 years, said the Halifax man was sometimes openly controlling and jealous of his long-time girlfriend.

BEFORE: During the afternoon on April 24, Nova Scotia RCMP posted on social media that they were responding to a report of shots fired in the Haliburton Heights area of Hammonds Plains, in the Halifax area.

Among the dead were a teacher, a home care nurse working on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic, and an RCMP officer.

Another was Heather O'Brien, who was caring for the elderly with the non-profit Victorian Order of Nurses (VON), during the provincial-wide lockdown before she was killed near her hometown of Debert, Nova Scotia.

Also killed in the Portapique area are Greg and Jamie Blair, who ran a local business, Peter and Joy Bond and Lisa McCully, an elementary school teacher.

Police say the men took the airsoft weapon to the parking lot and passed it back and forth and then entered the Canadian Tire to buy airsoft ammunition.

Sean McLeod and his partner Alanna Jenkins were among those killed.

Married couple Jamie Blair and Greg Blair were killed on Sunday, according to a relative.

This "obviously complicated things" and gave the suspect an "advantage" over police, the public and "every person that he encountered through the course of his rampage".
