A number of officers had responded to reports that a strange man dressed in army fatigues was walking around a trailer park carrying a rifle, a shotgun, a knife and a bow. When the officers arrived at the scene, Justin Bourque, age 24, opened fire and shot five of them, three fatally. 

Justin Bourque escaped and wasn't apprehended until just after midnight on June 6,

2014.  He has been charged with three counts of first degree murder and two counts of attempted murder. 

Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray for
Douglas, David and Fabrice
and for those who have
lost them
His friends stated that Bourque was more into drinking and music than guns. They are shocked at his actions which seem extremely out of character.

Tragically deceased are:

Constable Douglas Larch, age 40, was originally from Saint John, New Brunswick. He was a highway patrol and general duty officer. Six years ago he had received a commendation for saving the life of an unconscious baby. He had been a Mountie for 12 years and had worked in Miramichi and Doaktown and then in the Codiac detachment. He was a husband and a father. Friends stated that he had a lifelong ambition of becoming a law enforcement officer. He was well liked and well respected by those in the communities in which he worked.

Constable David Ross, age 32, was originally from Victoriaville, Quebec. He was a police dog services handler with the Codiac detachment. He was married, had a young son and he and his wife, Rachael, are expecting their second child in September of 2014. Friends describe him as a good man who was passionate about his work.

Constable Fabrice Gevaudan, age 45, was originally from Boulogne-Billancourt, France. He graduated from the RCMP Academy in 2008 and was transferred to the detachment in Moncton as a general duty police officer. He is described as a professional and reliable officer.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police are in mourning over the deaths of their brothers, who will be forever remembered. 

The loved ones of these officers have suffered an unspeakable loss. 

Douglas Larch, David Ross and Fabrice Gevaudan are survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members who will forever mourn them.

Thank you for your service to the public, Gentlemen.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

God save us from the psychopaths. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Douglas, David and Fabrice are in heaven. Pray that they are at peace and are with God. Amen.
