The police officers and civilians were gunned down Aug. 10 outside an apartment complex in the New Brunswick capital.

Court documents say the incident ended after police shot the alleged gunman in the abdomen.

Defence lawyer Nathan Gorham told the court he had just received a large volume of material and needed time to review it.
