One of the shooters is dead, two others are being sought. The Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC is on lockdown. A soldiers at the war memorial is dead, and two others were wounded.
Pray for the safety of all Canadians and for their success in hunting down the savages that did this.
Heavily-armed police cleared Canada’s Parliament building today and are searching for three suspects after a trio of shooting incidents near the Parliament and killed a soldier wounded. Gunfire was heard inside Parliament.
One of the three suspects was “dealt with,” according to a spokesman for the Ottawa Police. Officials later said that male suspect was killed.
The gunfire prompted security force to hustle Prime Minister Stephen Harper to a “safe” place not at Parliament Hill, his spokesperson said. Harper’s usual office is in a building near the shooting site.
“The prime minister is safe and not on Parliament Hill and being briefed by security officials,” his spokesman Jason MacDonald said.
Ottawa Police said via Twitter the initial shooting took place at 9:52 a.m. at the National War Memorial of Canada, but that was just the beginning of the violent episode, which has now stretched into investigations in two other locations: Parliament Hill and the nearby Rideau Centre, a large shopping mall that was subsequently evacuated.
Ottawa Police Constable Marc Soucy told Canada’s CTV police were searching for more than one suspect and no one has been arrested.
Civic Hospital in Ottawa, the country’s capital, has received three patients, two of whom are in stable condition.
Earlier today witnesses told CTV they saw a man with long hair carrying a rifle and heard four shots fired at the soldier, who was guarding Canada’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Condolences to family of the soldier killed, & prayers for the Parliamentary guard wounded. Canada will not be terrorized or intimidated.
