a large stone and bronze memorial of men from the First World War. He was killed. Then the gunman either grabbed a car or ran to the Capitol building, and ran in through the main doors which are usually wide open leading directly to a security area. There was a very significant exchange of fire and the gunman was killed. Boy, do the marble halls of Parliament reflect the sounds of gunfire. Quite an extensive exchange of gun fire. Two people injured.
The authorities are looking for a possible second suspect, though this all sounds very hazy. There is no confirmation that there were two gunmen.
First contact at 9:52 AM EST. The whole thing was over before 11:00 AM.Though the police are still searching for the possible other gun-man.
2 dead, a soldier from the Reserves, plus the gunman, and 2 mildly wounded.
The Quebec Assemblee Nationale was invaded some 12 or 13 years ago by a man armed with an automatic weapon AK-47, and several were killed and wounded. This is the only other incident of the same sort in Canadian history, though back in the 19th Century a Member of Parliament was shot dead on the street. (?Sir Charles Tupper?).
