RCMP have revealed dramatic security video footage from Parliament Hill showing the moments after a gunman fatally shot a soldier from behind at the National War Memorial and then stormed Centre Block carrying a high-powered firearm.
The man shot dead on Parliament Hill after killing a Canadian reservist at the National War Memorial had a 'very developed' criminality, but did not set off any alarm bells when it came to national security, the RCMP said Thursday.
Canada’s military forces are trying to determine when to resume posting soldiers at Canada’s National War Memorial in Ottawa, the chief of defence staff said Thursday, a day after the fatal shooting of a young reservist.
The man suspected of fatally shooting a Canadian reservist before storming Parliament Hill on Wednesday had a criminal record, documents show, with a string of convictions for petty crimes dating back to the early 2000s.
Members of Parliament dove for cover and barricaded themselves behind tables and chairs as gunfire shattered the peace of their weekly routine caucus meetings Wednesday morning when a gunman stormed Parliament Hill.
