Nova Scotia gunman acquired police cars through auction, more details provided by RCMP

BY , Apr 28, 2020 10:39 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

RCMP investigators search for evidence at the location where Const. Heidi Stevenson was killed along the highway in Shubenacadie, N.S. on Thursday, April 23, 2020. Police say the man who went on a murderous rampage through five Nova Scotia communities was likely using unlicensed firearms, and investigators are trying find out how he obtained illegal weapons.

The gunman who killed 22 people across Nova Scotia this month owned a total of four used police cars obtained at auction, including the one he drove in the deadly rampage.

Nova Scotia RCMP say Gabriel Wortman collected other police memorabilia, including the genuine RCMP shirt and yellow striped pants he wore April 18th and 19th.

The uniform, along with the vehicle outfitted with a light bar and decals to make it look like a genuine police cruiser, allowed the gunman to escape detection during the manhunt.

There is no indication police were aware of the collection before the massacre.
