OTTAWA -- The 38-year-old man shot to death while working at a Gatineau daycare loved children and had planned to return to his native France.

Neil Galliou might have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time, police said Monday, when he was killed before the shooter turned the gun on himself.

“The parents of Mr Galliou wish to tell us (their) son loved to work with kids,” said Gatineau police chief Mario Harel. “He would have tried anything to protect them.”
