A Canadian man went on a shooting rampage and killed 13 people, including a Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer. The rampage seems to have started with the killer targeting people he knew before killing others randomly.
While all mass shootings are disturbing, this one has a facet we haven't really seen. The killer went far out of his way to complete his police disguise. Early news reports state he was wearing a police uniform and driving a Ford Taurus Police Interceptor dressed up to look like an RCMP vehicle.
That's right; he was driving a fake police car. We don't have an actual photo of the car (the RCMP photo looks like a standard RCMP vehicle with the number photoshopped for the alert), but most people aren't savvy enough to spot minor differences in police vehicles.
Killers like to copycat each other. Could this become a disturbing new trend?
