Three  Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers have been killed and two other wounded at the hands of a gunman in Moncton, Canada. The gunman is still on the loose as there is currently a massive manhunt for the suspect. New Brunswick RCMP said the police received a call at 7:20 p.m. AT Wednesday about a man wearing camouflage and carrying guns.  One resident,  Joan MacAlpine-Stiles, recalled seeing the gunman when she opened a window and said, “Oh my God, there he is with camouflage and the headband and a gun, and it looked like a bow he had with him, and I mean he was just through our backyard.”

A man dressed in fatigues and carrying a rifle went on a rampage, killing three police officers and wounding two others.

Police posted to social media a photograph of a man dressed in fatigues, carrying what appeared to be a rifle.

Thursday morning, the shooter was still on the loose.

Residents were asked to keep their doors locked and their outside lights on, as helicopters hovered overhead and the hunt for the gunman continued.

UPDATE I: Suspect is identified as 24 year old Justin Bourque.

The police have warned Canadian residents not to provide police movements on social media so not to put police in more danger in trying to apprehend the suspect, 24 year old Justin Bourque, the individual alleged to have killed three  Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers. Police state that  Bourque is “armed and dangerous” and it warned residents to stay indoors away from windows and to lock their doors.

New Brunswick RCMP have confirmed that three officers were shot and killed and two other officers were wounded by a heavily armed gunman Wednesday evening in Moncton.

A police manhunt is still underway for Justin Bourque, 24. The RCMP say Bourque is considered “armed and dangerous.”

Paul Greene, an RCMP spokesman, said Bourque was last seen in the wooded area near the Pinehurst subdivision. Police are asking people to keep their doors locked and leave their outdoor lights on.

RCMP Const. Damien Theriault could not say how many police officers were involved in the manhunt.

      Person of interest: What we know about Justin Bourque
      Thursday, June 5, 2014 7:51AM EDT

      Beyond saying Bourque is 24-years-old, however, police have not released any other details about him.

      An active Facebook page that appears to belong to a Justin Bourque in Moncton, N.B. features several pro-gun and anti-police photos and rants. Many of the posts are meme photos with text written on them.

      “Free men do not ask permission to bear arms,” says one photo, with an image of Revolutionary War fighters on it. Another image shows a handgun and bullets with following text: “I will help you: 1. Shop for your first firearm 2. Learn firearm safety 3. Train with your firearm 4. Find ammo, mags and parts FREE.” Another post shows the wages for various politicians, including the prime minister, compared to the income for active soldiers and soldiers on pensions.

      “Ask yourself, would you fight for the future of your children or grandchildren, or your family and friends and sons and daughters?” says a post from April 7. “The answer is: no you’re too stupid to know what to fight for, cause we’re already losing the silent war you don’t wanna believe is happening.”

      There is an American connection. Justin’s Facebook page had a “friend” named Neil Bourque who may be a relative. The profile for Neil Bourque is now gone but last night it stated he was born in the US. He had a number of postings that were violently anti-police.
