At least two people, one of them a police officer, have died in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia after a gunman went on a 12-hour rampage, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp reports.
The accused gunman – 51-year-old Gabriel Wortman – is one of the dead, it said, citing sources.
Police arrested Wortman after a car chase earlier on Sunday on suspicion of shooting several people, whose conditions they did not specify.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said the incident occurred in the small Atlantic coastal town of Portapique, about 130km north of the provincial capital Halifax.
Premier Stephen McNeil said “this is one of the most senseless acts of violence in our province’s history”, without giving details.
