nova scotia shooter video

Video shows Nova Scotia shooter stopping to change clothes during deadly rampage

Video from a surveillance camera appears to show the Nova Scotia shooting suspect stopped briefly during his rampage, shortly before he was killed by police.

Unconfirmed footage appears to show shooting suspect 51-year-old Gabriel Wortman stopping his mock RCMP police cruiser outside a business in Millbrook First Nation.

The short clip shows a man matching Wortman's description pulling up and exiting the car to remove a jacket before putting on a yellow reflective vest and driving off again.

The timestamp on the video shows it was recorded at 10:55 a.m. local time on April 19. Shortly after, police tweeted that Wortman had been seen travelling southbound on Highway 102 from the Brookfield area, about eight kilometres from where the video was taken.

Less than an hour later, police reported that Wortman had been taken into custody before confirming that he had died during a confrontation with police at a gas station in Enfield.

Wortman is suspected of having killed 22 people across multiple locations.

RCMP have not confirmed it's Wortman in the video and the investigation remains ongoing.
