A friend of the 24-year-old man who is suspected in the killings of three police officers and the maiming of two others in the Canadian city of Moncton says he’s perplexed as to what could have caused his friend to lose it.
“[The alleged gunman Justin Bourque] loved Megadeth but what he did had nothing to do with it,” says Chris Gould, a fellow metalhead. “And he’s no trained assassin and no militant.”
Than what happened?
“Something really ticked him, but we don’t know what,” Gould says of his friend. “He was home-schooled all his life and had a really religious family, but that has nothing to do with it either.”
Bourque was arrested early Friday morning after police apprehended the suspect in a Moncton resident’s backyard.
Bourque posted the lyrics to Megadeth’s song “Hook In Mouth” on his Facebook page just hours before he is believed to have committed the crimes.
