A New Brunswick man charged with fatally shooting three RCMP officers and wounding two others last month in Moncton will return to court today after undergoing a psychiatric assessment.

Justin Bourque faces three charges of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

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 on June 4. Constables Eric Dubois and Darlene Goguen were wounded and later released from hospital.

Bourque was arrested following a 30-hour manhunt. The 24-year-old man has not entered pleas to the charges.
