One gunman is shot and killed just outside the MPs caucus rooms, by Vickers, the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms. One guard is shot in the leg. Another gunman is reportedly still at large.
The gunman killed by Vickers is identified as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau by various news agencies, quoting intelligence officials. Zehaf-Bibeau, who reportedly converted to Islam, has been brought to US agencies’ attentions, according to two American officials. One of the officials said that the man was from Quebec.
Police did not directly answer questions from reporters about the possibility that another shooter – or shooters – were still at large.
Canadian broadcaster CBC reported that Bibeau had a record of drug arrests going back 10 years.
