Constable Marc Bourdages and Constable Robin Cameron had responded to an assault call in Spiritwood, Saskatchewan, and were shot in a gun battle after a 27 kilometer chase. The constables had been in critical condition in a Saskatoon hospital since the shooting, which occurred near the farming community of Mildred, about 140 kilometers west of Prince Albert.
The suspect fled on foot after the shooting and has turned himself in. He had been the subject of a massive manhunt since the constables were shot. The suspect’s father has been charged with obstructing justice for defying a police order to stay away from a restricted police search area, where the Royal Canadian Mounted Police believed his son was hiding. The suspect also faces a charge of attempted murder of a third officer who had joined the chase, who was not injured.
Both constables succumbed to their injuries eight days later and within two hours of each other.
Constable Bourdages had served with the agency for 5.5 years and was posted to Spiritwood Detachment, F Division. He is survived by his wife, also a constable with Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and 9-month-old son.
