Police in Nova Scotia arrested a man driving a car disguised as a police cruiser after a shooting at a gas station resulted in “multiple victims,” including one police officer killed.

The National Police Federation (NPF), a union representing law enforcement officers in Canada, said on its website that one of its officers had been killed and another wounded in a shooting Sunday.

“Our hearts are heavy with grief and sadness today as we have lost one of our own. Our thoughts go out to our Member’s family and friends,” wrote the union’s president, Brian Sauvé. “A second dedicated Member was injured in the line of duty today. We will do everything we can to support them and wish them a full recovery.”

“The NPF is on the ground in the Halifax area working hard to ensure all our Members and their families are supported. We are there for them now and will be there for them for the coming days and months as they work through this tragedy,” he continued.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed in tweets that Gabriel Wortman was apprehended after driving a vehicle disguised as a RCMP cruiser.

“Gabriel Wortman, suspect in active shooter investigation, is now in custody. More information will be released when available. Thank you for your cooperation and support,” tweeted the RCMP on Sunday, adding that it would hold a press conference later in the afternoon on the shooting.
