Upper Big Tracadie tragedy

A troubled veteran, fighting P-T-S-D, apparently killed his daughter, wife and mother then turned the gun on himself in Upper Big Tracadie.

The RCMP says 33 year old Lionel Desmond shot himself after shooting 31 year old Shanna Desmond, their 10 year old daughter Aaliyah and his 52 year old mother Brenda Desmond.

D-N-D says Desmond was a retired corporal who did one tour of Afghanistan in 2007, and was released from the military in 2015.
