Motives Sought in US-Canada Border Shooting

A Canadian border guard shot in her booth at a busy U.S.-Canada crossing north of Seattle remained hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday as investigators worked to determine the identity and motive of the man who wounded her and committed suicide.

The suspect, driving a white van with Washington license plates, shot Officer Lori Bowcock in the neck at 2 p.m. Tuesday as he was entering Canada at the Peace Arch crossing at Blaine. He then died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, investigators said.
