“A soldier (not pictured above) has been shot at Ottawa’s War Memorial in Canada, near the parliament, after a gunman opened fire. The soldier was being treated by paramedics and police rushed on the scene. Witnesses told CBC News that the suspected shooter was carrying rifle.” The report from ibtimes.co.uk has no information as to the soldier’s condition. Another attack on two Canadian soldiers yesterday – that one vehicular – killed one and injured the other. That incident is now being called a terrorist attack by a radical Islamic convert. Canada is part of the coalition fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria. There’s no information yet whether the two crimes are related in any way. More as details emerge.
UPDATE: bbc.com reports that the gunman continued shooting inside Canada’s Parliament building – “Witnesses reported seeing a gunman firing at the Ottawa War Memorial and then running toward the government buildings, where more shots were heard. A soldier has been wounded in the attack, Canadian media report. The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level from low to medium. A soldier was killed in a hit-and-run earlier in the week. Two Canadian MPs later said the gunman was killed, but that has yet to be confirmed.”
