Shots fired inside Canada parliament

Several shots have been fired inside and outside the nation's parliament in Ottawa, leaving one soldier wounded.

A gunman fired at soldiers at the National War Memorial and then continued the attack inside parliament.

Canadian broadcaster CBC and several MPs report that one gunman has been killed but that is unconfirmed.

The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level following a fatal hit-and-run attack on two soldiers earlier in the week.

"Shots fired at War Memorial at 9:52am today; one person injured," Ottawa Police tweeted on Wednesday as a witness reported seeing authorities search from room to room for the suspect.

There is not much information and from what I can gather no-one inside has been hurt. More information I am sure will be given as and when it can be.

Sounds like to me this is because of Canada's involvement in the war against ISIS. Wouldn't surprise me if we saw something like that here.

I hope they get everyone involved and no one is killed except maybe the perpetrators.

I think its sad the soldier died. The coward shot him in the back. My condolences go out to his family. How they must be hurting at this moment.

They have identified the dead gunman as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau and they still think there was another person involved in this. If there was I hope they catch him.
