Shots fired inside Canada parliament
A series of shootings have taken place in and around Canada’s parliament, leaving one soldier wounded.
It is unclear how many gunmen there are but one shooter is believed dead.
An assailant fired at the National War Memorial and then ran into parliament nearby, continuing the attack. More shots were fired at a shopping centre.
The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level following a fatal hit-and-run attack on two soldiers on Monday.
The latest incident began when soldiers guarding the memorial came under fire on Wednesday morning.
“Shots fired at War Memorial at 9:52am today; one person injured,” Ottawa Police tweeted.
