I saw this on the TV at the gym a little bit ago; hopefully this is resolved in short order.

The perpetrator was dispatched with all due haste. Not sure about the other two reported shootings. Great response by the authorities.

They're still treating it as an active situation. This country is just full of sick crap lately. This incident, the Montreal attack recently... yesterday they found a storage locker full of dead babies in Winnipeg... I'm getting to the point where I'd welcome martial law

Yeah, I saw that on the ticker. I think that's more brutal that a couple of shooting victims.

Some good video of when the gunfire broke out inside Parliament. Also a profile on the Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, who has a largely ceremonial position but was the man to put down the first gunman.

He was RCMP before that and is in charge of security in the House.

The whole thing wasn't very well thought out or executed from a perpetrator point of view. I find it hard to believe it was some sort of coordinated terrorist attack. He shoots one unarmed guy then walks right into the most heavily guarded part in that area. Doesn't make much sense. So many other people around there to shoot at but didn't take one shot other than the soldier he killed.

The military is not speaking about the incident as of yet. It's kind of horrifying to have gone almost 12 hours in this day and age with very little information other than the identity of the dead victim.
