The falling rain did not deter hundreds of mourners from paying their respects Friday night to three officers who were killed in this week's shootings in Moncton, N.B.

People gathered to honour the memories of constables Fabrice Gevaudan, Douglas Larche and David Ross.

Mourners dropped off several flowers outside Codiac RCMP headquarters and signed a book of condolences set up next to portraits of all three officers.
