MONCTON, New Brunswick, Canada (CTV/CNN) - A gunman shot five police officers, killing three of them Wednesday.

The shots were fired in the province of New Brunswick, which borders Maine. The search for the suspect carried into the overnight hours.

A woman posted a chilling video on her Facebook page, which shows some of the initial chaos as a gunman roamed the neighborhood and opened fire on a police officer.

"While responding to a call of an armed man in the north end of the city of Moncton, three of Codiac RCMP officers were shot and killed," Codiac RCMP Constable Damien Theriault said. "Two other officers were also injured, but their life is not threatened at this time."

Officers swarmed on the subdivision, taking what cover they could behind their cruisers, as authorities tried to locate the gunman.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police tweeted a photo of an armed suspect, a man wearing fatigues and carrying two rifles, whom they identified as 24-year-old Justin Bourque, a resident of Moncton.

On its Twitter page, the RCMP in New Brunswick warned residents to stay in their homes, to lock their doors and to leave their outside lights on as police looked for the gunman.

As helicopters flew overhead and officers scoured the area, the RCMP also asked people not to talk about police movements on social media, warning even more officers could be put at risk.
