ENFIELD, Nova Scotia — A suspect in an active shooter investigation was arrested at a gas station in Nova Scotia, after police said there were “multiple victims” in an incident Sunday that began in a small coastal village where frightened local residents took cover in their basements overnight.

Police didn’t immediately say how many victims there were, or the nature of their injuries.

A man identified by police as 51-year-old Gabriel Wortman was arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at the Enfield, Nova Scotia, gas station, northwest of downtown Halifax.

By late morning, there were half a dozen police vehicles at the scene.
