ENFIELD, Nova Scotia — A 51-year-old man went on a shooting rampage across the northern part of Nova Scotia Sunday, killing at least 10 people, including a police officer, reports the New York Post

The suspect, who is also dead, was identified as Gabriel Wortman, who was found by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in a gas station in Enfield, Nova Scotia, northwest of downtown Halifax. 

“In excess of 10 people have been killed,” RCMP Chief Superintendent Chris Leather said. “We believe it to be one person who is responsible for all the killings and that he alone moved across the northern part of the province and committed what appears to be several homicides.”

The dead officer has been identified as Const. Heidi Stevenson, a mother of two and a 23-year veteran of the force.
