Canada Shooting – level 3

24-04-2020 15:00

18 people were killed in Nova Scotia over the weekend in the deadliest shooting in Canadian history.

A 51-year-old gunman, who was disguised as a police officer, shot people in their homes, and he set several houses on fire. He was later shot dead by police.

Several bodies were found inside and outside one home in the small rural town about 60 miles north of Halifax. Police believe that it is the place where the shooter targeted his first victims; however, he then began attacking randomly. Residents in the area were already on lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic when officers suddenly alerted them to lock their doors and stay in their basements.

The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, told the media that he intends to continue with stronger gun control measures.

Difficult words:  randomly (without any organization or plan), alert (to warn someone of a danger or problem), measure (a restriction, a control).
