    Several shots have been fired inside and outside the nation's parliament in Ottawa, leaving one soldier wounded.

    A gunman fired at the National War Memorial and then ran into parliament nearby, continuing the attack.

    Several buildings around the city are on lockdown and there are reports of more shots fired at a shopping mall near the parliament.

    The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level following a fatal attack on Monday.

    One soldier was killed and another injured when a Muslim convert attacked them in a hit-and-run.

    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.

    Canadian broadcaster CBC and several MPs report that one gunman has been killed but that is unconfirmed.

    Police have told those in the vicinity to stay away from windows and roofs as they search for additional suspects.

    One gunman - said to be carrying a rifle - fired on soldiers guarding Canada's main war memorial and then ran into the parliament.

    "The indications are there is more than one gunman. There may be several," Canadian MP Marc Garneau told the BBC, adding he and fellow politicians were evacuated from the area.


    Witnesses described a scene of chaos in the parliament.

    There are no reports yet of anyone inside the building being hurt.

    Earlier, Ottawa Police told the BBC there could be more than one shooter. The nearby University of Ottawa has been placed on lockdown, as well as all local police buildings.

    Meanwhile, Prime Minister Stephen Harper "is safe and has left Parliament Hill", his director of communications wrote on Twitter.

    Senior government member Tony Clement said on Twitter shots were fired near an in-progress cabinet meeting in parliament.

    A government official earlier said the raised threat level was in response to an increase in online "general chatter" from radical groups including Islamic State and al-Qaeda.

    Ministry spokesman Jean-Christophe de Le Rue said on Tuesday that the increased level "means that intelligence has indicated that an individual or group within Canada or abroad has the intent and capability to commit an act of terrorism".


    On Tuesday a Muslim convert was killed by Quebec police after deliberately hitting two soldiers in his car, killing one and injuring another.


    A minister said it was a "terrible act of violence against our country".

    Earlier this month, Canada announced plans to join the US-led campaign of air strikes against Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq.

    So, these chronic interfering busybodies who constantly lecture so-called "third world nations" are getting some hard doses of reality.

    I don't think there is any reason for Sikhs to attack Canadians, There is some info. about ISIS threat for Canada. Lets wait for the official statement which will come in a moment.

    Just yesterday a Muslim convert tried to runover 2 Canadian soldiers by car and killed 1 of the soldier.So this attack might be related in the series.

    No wonder... Canada is the HUB of separatists and immigrants.

    Canada is a colony of France and US.

    I think it could be the ISIS way of intimidating the Canadian authorities for sending troops to fight them. An attack anywhere near very important democratic buildings would bring the world attention towards the incident.
    The world Govts should stop categorizing good guys and bad guys when it comes to terrorism and senseless support for political parties/individual groups/rebels with weapons and money for vested interests. The world nations should come together on this and fight together against all forms of terrorisms.

    Well, unless some Govts think that its easy to do oil business with random indviduals and groups than with Govts and establishments under proper Govts.

    Canadian police are investigating a man identified as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau as a possible suspect in the shootings on Wednesday around parliament in Ottawa, a source familiar with the matter said.

    Police said the male suspect in the attacks was dead but did not confirm he was Zehaf-Bibeau. Some U.S. government sources said the shooter was born Michael Joseph Hall but changed his name to Zehaf-Bibeau.

    Two U.S. officials said that U.S. agencies have been advised that the shooter was a Canadian convert to Islam. One of the officials said the man was from Quebec.

    The Canadian Security Intelligence Service declined to comment on the gunman's identity.

    The shooting was the second attack on Canadian soldiers in a week.

    I wonder what the reaction from Canada will be? Will they term their security forces as a "violent force" or will they call their own government a fascist govt, perhaps they should look at some of their own advice given to other countries about terrorists/naxals/separatists and apply it here....

    I must remember the speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the general assembly that terrorism was taking "new shape and new name" and no country, big or small was free from its threat
