A clearer picture emerged Friday of what happened during the two hours between when a Canadian Armed Forces member, Corey Hurren, allegedly rammed through the gates at Rideau Hall, armed with “several weapons,” and his arrest without incident Thursday on the grounds of the official residences housing Gov. Gen. Julie Payette and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Hurren, 46, faces 22 criminal charges, including four counts each of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, unauthorized possession in a motor vehicle, careless use, storage and handling of a firearm, and contravening firearms transport regulations.
He faces one count of possession of a restricted weapon for a dangerous purpose, and is charged with possessing a restricted firearm and a prohibited device while knowing both are unauthorized.
He is charged with two counts of possessing a loaded prohibited firearm without authorization to possess the firearm. He is charged with one count of possessing weapons at an unauthorized place, and one count of uttering threats.
