Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of the RCMP shootings in Moncton

Tuesday marks the 10th anniversary of one of the worst police shootings in Canadian history.

A gunman targeting police opened fire on the evening of June 4, 2014 in the north side of Moncton, NB.

Five RCMP officers were shot during the 20-minute shooting spree before the gunman disappeared into a wooded area.

Const. Dave Ross, 32, Const. Fabrice Gevaudan, 45, and Const. Douglas Larche, 40, died in the incident.

Two other officers – Éric Dubois and Marie Goguen – were also shot but survived their wounds.

The lone gunman kept the city on edge for more than 29 hours until he was captured just after midnight on June 6.

Justin Bourque pleaded guilty to three first-degree murders and two attempted murders and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 75 years.

However, his parole was later reduced to 25 years post-parole Supreme Court of Canada ruled the portion of the Criminal code that it was possible to allow successive parole exclusions in cases involving multiple murders is unconstitutional.
