Manhunt in New Brunswick after at least 2 shot

Police in the east coast Canadian province of New Brunswick were searching Wednesday for an armed man after at least two people, both police officers, were injured in a shooting.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in New Brunswick said on its Twitter feed that they were looking for 24-year-old Justin Bourque of Moncton who is considered armed and dangerous. The police force tweeted an image of a suspect wearing military camouflage and wielding two guns.

RCMP spokesman Paul Greene said two RCMP officers were hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.

The Horizon Health Network, a provincial health authority, said on its Twitter feed that two patients were taken to the Moncton Hospital with gunshot wounds.

Constable Damien Theriault said police were urging people in a certain area of Moncton, New Brunswick to stay inside.

He said the search for the suspect was concentrated around two streets.

Sean Gallacher, who lives near the area where police were concentrating their search, said he heard what he now believes were gunshots but initially thought his daughter had dropped some toys on the floor above him.

"I was downstairs and heard a few bangs," said Gallacher, 35.
