Wortman disguised himself as a police officer during his shooting rampage. He was wearing an authentic uniform and driving a vehicle that looks similar to a police cruiser.
According to the RCMP, most of the victims were adults except for a 17-year old girl. Among the victims were an officer, a retired firefighter, a teacher, and a nurse. The Police noted that Wortman knew some of his victims and he probably targeted them.
The RCMP is still investigating his motive for committing such a horrible crime. It is also looking into how he obtained a vehicle that resembles a police cruiser.
