On April 24, during a press conference, Nova Scotia RCMP gave a detailed update on the timeline of events that happened during the shooting rampage that spanned two days.

"To call this a tragedy would be an understatement," said Supt. Darren Campbell.

There were three clusters of incidents during the shooting.

Then there was a 911 call for a shooting.

At 10:26 p.m., officers arrived in the area and found a male leaving the area with a gunshot wound. 

He was shot while driving in his car by a vehicle that passed him by and has survived.

The victim described the car as a police-like vehicle.

Supt. Campbell noted that there is only one way in and out of the community. 

When police arrived, several people were found lying in the roadway in Portapique and there were structures engulfed in flames.

Victims were found in seven locations that were searched. The gunman's home and garages were also on fire.

He was in possession of a pistol and long-barreled weapons and owned several police-like vehicles.

Then, at 6:30 a.m. on April 19, the first female victim emerged from hiding and confirmed details about the gunman.

She noted that he had a fully marked and equipped RCMP vehicle and uniform.

After that, a bulletin was put out to all police forces in Nova Scotia about the suspect.

Supt. Campbell said that 13 people were found dead in the Portapique area.
