    "The incident began when the uniformed officer, who was driving a marked cruiser, stopped a vehicle in a traffic stop around 2:45 a.m. PT Wednesday at Batchelor Drive and North River Drive.

    As he approached the vehicle, he was shot. A second officer on back-up returned fire at the suspect vehicle before it fled.

    " The officer was able to share vital information with investigators before he was taken by ambulance.

    “He was able to relay information that was very helpful in the initial stages of our investigation,” Meuller said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with our colleague, his wife, his two young children, and the rest of his family.”

    He confirmed the officer was wearing a bulletproof vest at the time of the shooting. It is unclear how many times he was shot.

    Police are warning the public that the suspect or suspects in the vehicle are considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.

    Mounties say they’re looking for a 1998-model, white, four-door Chrysler Intrepid with B.C. license plate AF7 65A. Anyone who sees it is asked to call police immediately."

    "VICTORIA – A 36-year-old man who is known to police has been arrested by members of an emergency-response team in Kamloops, B.C., just hours after an RCMP officer was shot and critically wounded.

    RCMP Supt. Brad Mueller said Wednesday that police helicopters and dogs were also involved in the search for the suspect who allegedly shot Cpl. Jean Michaud earlier in the day in the city located in the province’s Interior."
