Canadian Border Guard Shot by Man Entering Washington

Van had Washington license plates, the border patrol agent is in stable condition


Canadian border guard Lori Bowcock, shot in the neck in her booth at the Peace Arch Crossing, had worked as a civilian dispatcher at police headquarters in London, Ontario, until last spring, police said.

Bowcock, who is in stable condition, was wounded Tuesday by a man entering Canada in a van with Washington license plates who then died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, said Royal Canadian Mounted Police Cpl. Bert Paquet.
