MONCTON, New Brunswick (AP) -- A man charged with fatally shooting three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers and wounding two others in June has pleaded guilty.

Justin Bourque, 24, pleaded guilty Friday to first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The killings and ensuing manhunt brought the city of Moncton, New Brunswick, to a near-standstill until an arrest was made about 30 hours later.

Constables Dave Ross, Fabrice Gevaudan and Douglas Larche were killed after responding to a report of a man with firearms in a residential neighborhood in Moncton on June 4.

Bourque recently was found competent and mentally fit to stand trial.
