One Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer was killed and another was wounded, a police union president said.

A police officer and a 51-year-old gunman were dead after a 12-hour shooting rampage in Nova Scotia in which at least 10 people were killed, the police said Sunday. 

The authorities responded to reports of a shooting about 10:30 p.m. on Saturday in the area of Portapique Beach Road, Bay Shore Road and Five Houses Road in Portapique, a small rural community about 35 miles from Truro, Nova Scotia.

Police confirmed at a news conference on Sunday afternoon that at least 10 people were killed in multiple locations during the 12-hour rampage, which ended at a gas station. It was not immediately clear if that figure included the gunman.

Earlier on Sunday, Brian Sauvé, president of the National Police Federation, a union that represents members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, said in a statement that one officer had been killed and another was injured in the shooting. The identities of the officers were not immediately released.
