One shooter shot dead inside parliament building!
Said to be a “male with a long rifle”…
OTTAWA–Two days after two Canadian soldiers were run over â€” and one of them killed â€” in Quebec by a man with jihadist sympathies. Now a soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa has been shot by an unknown gunman and people report hearing gunfire inside the halls of Parliament.
Â CBC witness says there may have been two suspects!
Just another isolated incident. Workplace violence. Nothing to do with Islam. Can’t blame all Muslims; Â Islam is a religion of peace, we must not blame the religion of 1.5 gazillion… blah blah…
Ottawa Shooting: Soldier Shot at Canada’s National War Memorial
This may turn out to have nothing to do with the Islamic State’s threats or with the Canadian hit-and-run jihadi who murdered a Canadian soldier a few days ago. But given those threats and that jihad murder, a jihad connection here cannot immediately be ruled out. (JW)
TheÂ soldierÂ was being treated by paramedics and police rushed on the scene.
Witnesses told CBC News that the suspected shooter wasÂ carryingÂ a rifle.
The Canadian parliament building was reported to be in lockdown following the shooting. Police have cordoned the area and blocked access to Parliament Hill.
Other reports said shots were fired inside the parliament.
