Canadian man
arrested for N.Y. shooting also suspect in Nova
Scotia murders

A 26-year-old Canadian has been detained in Texas in connection with the shooting death last week of a man at a remote hunting camp in northern New York.

According to New York State Police, Glen Race was apprehended Tuesday by the U.S. Border Patrol in the Brownsville, Texas, area. Police said Race had the .44-caliber rifle that was stolen from the scene in Mooers, N.Y., where Darcy Manor died Thursday night from a gunshot wound.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Wednesday that Race had earlier been charged in Nova Scotia with the murders of Trevor Brewster, 45, and Paul Michael Knott, 44.

Knott was found dead May 5 in the woods near Mill Cove, Nova Scotia. Brewster's body was found three days earlier in a Dartmouth park frequently used by men cruising for gay sex.

Investigators believe Race used Brewster's car to travel across Nova Scotia to New Brunswick and into the United States, police said.

U.S. Border Patrol officials said that Race attacked an agent who spotted a rifle in Race's bag and reached for it.

''Well, he did put up a struggle. There was a scuffle and they did take him into custody after restraining him,'' Border Patrol spokesman Oscar Saldana of the Rio Grande Valley Sector said in a story for Thursday's editions of The Brownsville Herald. ''He was combative.''

Race ''is our suspect in the homicide,'' New York State Police captain Robert LaFountain said. ''We will be seeking extradition on criminal charges in New York.''

He has not been charged with any crimes in New York State at this time but was being held on federal charges in Texas, police said.

Police located Manor's 1992 teal-colored Ford pickup in Houston late Tuesday. The vehicle had been missing since Manor's May 11 disappearance.

Mooers is 160 miles north of Albany near the Canadian border. (AP)
