OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says a weekend killing rampage in Nova Scotia has now claimed 18 lives.

Investigators are continuing to piece together one of Canada's deadliest mass killings, carried out by a man who at one point donned a police uniform and drove a mock-up cruiser.

The 18 victims include an RCMP officer, a teacher, two nurses, neighbours of the assailant and two correctional officers killed in their home.

The shooter was also killed after being intercepted by police Sunday.

More coming.
