A centre in New Brunswick will open its doors Monday so the public can pay their respects to three fallen Mounties.

The public visitation is being held at the Wesleyan Celebration Centre on St. George Boulevard in Moncton from 2 p-m to 9 p-m.

Police officers from across Canada are expected to attend a regimental funeral service for the three officers on Tuesday at the Moncton Coliseum. Constables Dave Ross, Fabrice Gevaudan and Douglas Larche were gunned down after responding to a report of a man with firearms in a residential neighbourhood of Moncton on Wednesday.

Justin Bourque is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, and two counts of attempted murder.

R-C-M-P are asking the public for any original videos or photos they have of the shootings. They're also asking residents to have a look around their properties for evidence or anything out of the ordinary.
