The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary has postponed a Tweet-Along it had planned for tonight.

It was the second such event scheduled by the police force to allow Twitter users to follow and interact with officers on patrol on the night shift on the Northeast Avalon through the RNC's Twitter account @RNC_policenl.

The RNC said today the decision to postpone tonight's event is out of respect for "our fallen brothers and sisters in Moncton and their families, colleagues and friends."

Three RCMP officers were shot and killed and two others injured Wednesday in a rampage by a gunman who's still at large.

A rescheduled date will be announced in the next week.

The RNC has asked the public instead to send their thoughts to the City of Moncton and RCMP by Tweeting the hashtags: #Moncton, #RCMP and #PrayForMoncton.
