Parliament Hill came under attack today after a man with a rifle shot and killed a soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa, before seizing a car and driving to the doors of Parliament Hill's Centre Block nearby.
MPs and other witnesses reported 30 to 50 shots fired inside Parliament, and a gunman has been confirmed dead inside the building, shot by the House of Commons sergeant-at-arms [Kevin Vickers], according to the MPs' accounts.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper was on the Hill at the time of the shooting, but was safely taken away.
Ottawa police confirmed early Wednesday afternoon that the soldier died from his injuries.
