 A man suspected of fatally shooting three New Brunswick Mounties and wounding two others in Moncton appeared today in provincial court.

Justin Bourque is facing three charges of first-degree murder and two charges of attempted murder.

Bourque was arrested early today inside a police perimeter in the city after one of the worst mass shootings in the RCMP's history.

 He appeared in court, packed with about 70 people, under heavy guard.

A tactical officer with an automatic rifle stood at the back of the courtroom.

The RCMP say the 24-year-old Moncton man was unarmed at the time of his arrest and taken into custody without incident.

A nerve-racking manhunt came to an end at around 12:10 a.m., ending a harrowing search that lasted nearly 30 hours.

A large swath of northwestern Moncton had been locked down after the officers were shot Wednesday evening, with residents asked to remain inside their homes with their doors locked.

Supt. Marlene Snowman says while Bourque was unarmed when he was arrested, police found weapons near the wooded residential area where he was taken into custody.
