Worst mass shooting in Canadian history: 16 DEAD, including one officer [updated]

Well this is terrible news. There has been a mass shooting in Canada, and some are reporting at least 10 deaths. Update: It is at least 16 deaths, making it the worst attack in Canadian history. From Fox News:

A man disguised as a police officer went on a shooting rampage in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia on Sunday, killing 16 people, in the deadliest such attack in the country’s history. Officials said the suspected shooter was also dead.

A police officer was among those killed. Several bodies were found inside and outside one home in the small, rural town of Portapique, about 60 miles (100 kilometers) north of Halifax — what police called the first scene. Bodies were also found at other locations.

And…

RCMP spokesman Daniel Brien confirmed that 16 people had been killed in addition to the suspect. The dead officer was identified as Constable Heidi Stevenson, a mother of two and a 23-year veteran of the force. Another officer was also injured.

Brien said he could not rule out that the death toll could still rise. Already, it is one of the worst shootings in Canadian history.

This is still new, so it may be that the information changes, but I’ll update with new information so keep checking back on this story.

From what I’m seeing, the man stole a cop car and pretended to be an officer on his killing spree. One police officer is dead. Earlier reports said Wortman was shot and killed by police, but later reports say he was apprehended. Terrible.
