Police: Quebec Shooter's Gun Jammed

The suspect's gun in a deadly shooting at a rally following the election of a separatist premier jammed after the initial shots were fired, a Quebec police official said Thursday, possibly saving lives.

Richard Henry Bain, 62, from La Conception, Quebec, was scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning after being accused of opening fire at a midnight victory rally Tuesday for Quebec's new separatist premier, killing one man and wounding another. A police official identified the suspect to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he has not been charged yet.
