Regimental Funeral Today For Fredericton Officers
Thousands of people will gather in Fredericton this afternoon for the regimental funeral for the two police officers killed in the shooting in the city a week ago.
Police and first responders from across the country will be at the service for constables Sara Burns and Robb Costello.
The pair was gunned down during a shooting at a north end Fredericton apartment complex that also claimed the lives of Bobbie Lee Wright and Donnie Robichaud.
A funeral service has already taken place for Wright and Robichaud’s widow says he requested no wake or funeral.
The regimental funeral is due to get underway at 1:00 this afternoon at Aitken University Centre.
Cape Breton Regional Police have sent at least ten officers to the funeral.
