Witnesses describe a man pulls up in a car in front of the monument just before 10am, gets out with a rifle and starts firing shots at the soldiers standing guard. About five or six shots were fired. One soldier is hit on the steps at the foot of the Cenotaph. Bystanders and paramedics provided emergency medical care. The soldier, believed to be a man in his 30s, was taken to Ottawa Civic Hospital by ambulance suffering from gunshots to his abdomen. Medical personnel are seen giving him cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.
