A gunman shot a solider in Ottowa and then entered the Canadian Parliament where he fired at least 3o shots.


CBC TV said that a suspected gunman was shot dead inside the parliament building. It was not clear if he was acting alone.

Ottawa police said they were actively looking for one or more suspects.

Parliament was locked down and Prime Minister Stephen Harper had left the building safely as police converged on the area.

As the situation developed, CBC News said in a tweeted news alert that more shots were fired near parliament and the gunman was still at large.[su_csky_ad]

      I think it is religious people going crazy..
      Or those who assume they are religious..
      Personally I believe they are predisposed sociopaths looking for any excuse to take their gun and shoot some people, and not caring if they die in the process.
      Be they willing to murder for the “unborn” or for some false prophet, or for the support of a “religion under attack by the west”…

      They are simply psychotic and willing to kill or die for their imaginary cause.

    The comments at the site about this story are genuinely depressing in the breadth and scope of the mind boggling ignorance.

    More than a few of the comments are blaming, you guessed it, President Obama for an alleged crime committed in Canada. And of course, the comments are garnished with healthy doses of old fashioned religious bigotry.

    The talking point has already been established that the shooter is a Muslim terrorist. Do we have any objective information to confirm this? Of course not.. Since when do ignorant people need facts?

    • tracey marie October 22nd, 2014 at 1:30 pm

      The shooter is a canadian who did convert to Islam and has been watched by Canadian authorities. He had his passport rescinded bewcause he expressed a desire to fight in Syria or Libya

      • StoneyCurtisll October 22nd, 2014 at 7:23 pm

        If the “shooter” actually did “recently convert to Islam”…
        Does that mean he was a life long, (until recently) Christian..
        What else would he convert from?

          good question

    BTW, Ottawa is spelled Ottowa in the article. And, 30 is 3o in it, also.
