Montreal - A gunman suspected of killing three police officers and wounding two others was arrested early Friday in Canada after a massive manhunt, police said.
The search for Justin Bourque, who is alleged to have carried out the brazen attack in the country's easternmost province of New Brunswick on Wednesday, had put the city of Moncton on lockdown for more than a day as police hunted the man described as armed and dangerous.
"Justin Bourque arrested by RCMP at 12:10 in Moncton. He is in police custody. Residents of north Moncton can now leave their homes," the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said on Twitter.
A resident of Moncton, Michelle Thibodeau, told CTV the suspect was arrested behind his house.
