Topic: Canada manhunt ends as suspect arrested for police killings


By Christinne Muschi MONCTON New Brunswick (Reuters) - Canadian police have arrested a man suspected of having shot dead three police officers and wounding two more, ending a massive manhunt, the police said on Friday. The shooting in the eastern city of Moncton was one of the worst of its kind in Canada, where gun laws are stricter than in the United States and deadly attacks on police are rare. Police arrested Justin Bourque, 24, shortly after midnight local time in Moncton, a city of about 70,000 in the East Coast province of New Brunswick. The arrest was witnessed by Moncton resident Michelle Thibodeau, CBC News reported.
