In an update on Sunday evening, RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki said police know of at least 13 victims, besides the shooter.

Nova Scotia RCMP said people were killed in several locations across the province, including a veteran RCMP officer.

Police said there may be more victims who have not been discovered yet and their investigation continues.
