Three charged, including spouse, with supplying ammunition to N.S. mass shooter

BY , Dec 5, 2020 2:25 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

Three people have been charged with supplying ammunition to the gunman who killed 22 people in the April 18-19 mass shooting in Nova Scotia.

RCMP say 64 year old James Blair Banfield, 52 year old Lisa Diane Banfield and 60 year old Brian Brewster are charged with unlawfully transferring ammunition, specifically .223 calibre Remington cartridges and .40 calibre Smith and Wesson cartridges.

Lisa Diane Banfield is listed on court probate documents as the common law spouse of the killer, Gabriel Wortman, who was killed by police on April 19.

The RCMP say the charges against 52 year old Lisa Banfield and two men relate to ammunition that was purchased and trafficked in Nova Scotia.

Police say the offences occurred in March but those charged "had no prior knowledge of the gunman's actions."

The Mounties say in a news release that those charged co-operated with police in the investigation.
