Canada Shooting: Police Hunt Second Gunman

Canada’s parliament is in lockdown after an armed man was seen running towards the building and dozens of shots were fired, according to media and eyewitnesses.

One gunman has been shot dead inside the building after the incident in the capital Ottawa, according to CBC TV.

Police are actively looking for one or more suspects, and earlier police told the AFP news agency that one or more, possibly up to three, shooters were feared to be on the roof of the parliament building.

It came after a soldier guarding a nearby war memorial was reportedly wounded after shots were fired.

Shots have also now been reported at a hotel in the city.

A construction worker at the parliament told the Reuters news agency he heard a gunshot, and then saw a man dressed in black with a scarf over his face running towards the building with a gun.

Another witness said more than 30 shots were fired inside the building.

One witness, Marc-Andre Viau, said he saw a man run into a caucus meeting at the parliament, chased by police who yelled “take cover.”

This was followed by “10, 15, maybe 20 shots,” possibly from an automatic weapon, he said.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is safe and has left Parliament Hill.

Michelle Rempel, MP for Calgary Centre North, tweeted: “Mom im okay Im in hiding.”

The cordon has been pushed back and media on the scene have been told they are not safe.

Police have warned people in Ottawa to stay away from windows and roofs.

The wounded soldier, who was standing guard at the National War Memorial, has been taken away in an ambulance.

The soldier appeared to be seriously wounded and medics were seen pushing on his chest to revive him.

The shooting comes two days after an Islamic convert ran down two Canadian soldiers near Montreal, killing one of them.

Authorities had raised the security threat level from low to medium after that incident.

The journalist reported asking Brenda why she had shot at the school, her apparent reply was “I don’t like Mondays.” Spencer has said she doesn’t recall making this remark.
