A New Brunswick man charged with fatally shooting three RCMP officers and wounding two others last month in Moncton has been found fit to stand trial.

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

A provincial court judge read today from a psychiatric assessment that concluded Bourque is competent and mentally fit for trial.

Bourque has elected to be tried by judge and jury and his case was adjourned until Aug. 8 in the Court of Queen's Bench.

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.
