Chaos in Canada's Capital: Soldier Killed in Shooting

A soldier was shot and killed at the National War Memorial in the Canadian capital of Ottawa Wednesday and dozens of shots were fired inside the nearby Parliament building, where members of the legislature barricaded themselves in rooms to escape the violence, authorities and witnesses said. A gunman who was shot and killed by security forces has been identified by a U.S. official as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, 32. Canadian media, quoting an aunt, identified the victim as Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. Hours later, downtown Ottawa remains on lockdown and the motive behind the attack is not clear. Ottawa Hospital said it had three patients, all with minor injuries. President Obama called the attacks "outrageous" in a phone call with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who is expected to speak later tonight. The attack comes two days after a man ran down two Canadian soldiers in his car in Montreal in what authorities called an apparent terrorist attack. Read »
