Nova Scotia RCMP are confirming a weekend rampage that claimed 22 lives began with the gunman attacking his girlfriend on Saturday night.

She was able to escape and hide in the woods during the night.

As she hid, shots were fired and several buildings were set on fire.

Bodies were found in seven locations.

Police say they set up a perimeter to try to capture the gunman and started going door-to-door.

More than six hours later, the woman told police that Gabriel Wortman was wearing a police uniform and driving a replica RCMP cruiser.
