Shooting At Parliament Hill

One soldier killed outside at War Memorial. Automatic gunfire in Centre Block of Parliament Buildings. MP's locked down.

Another shooting in nearby shopping mall (It now appears this shooting never happened). All bridges leading into Ottawa closed.

One gunman reported dead, soldier dead (not now confirmed), one other person wounded. This person appears to be one of the Parliamentary Security staff.

This video from Global TV shows the actual killing of the suspect. He was evidently shot by Parliament Buildings Sergeant At Arms, Kevin Vickers who is responsible for the safety of staff and visitors.

  1. The world just keeps getting smaller and more evil. How sad.

  2. Very sad. The soldiers are just ceremonial, probably not armed. The shooter has been identified. Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32, a Muslim converted Canadian who was designated an "At Risk Traveler" and who had his passport seized by the Canadian Government.
