http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/soldier-shot-at-ottawa-s-war-memorial-has-died-1.2065443

So I've been in a lockdown situation at my work since 10:30AM this morning. Nobody allowed in, nobody allowed out. A gunman shot a soldier on guard at our War Memorial and then proceeded to infiltrate the Parliament building with a rifle and reportedly shot 2 guards there (word is they are in hospital with non-life threatening injuries). The gunman was later shot dead in the building. Reports indicate that there may still be another gunman at large, and there were rumours of a gunman on a rooftop in the downtown area as well as a couple other shootings in the surrounding area. We then received a follow-up email telling all employees to stay away from windows. The whole downtown core of the city is on lockdown. I've lived in Ottawa my whole life and have never experienced anything of this kind; the city is such a quiet/peaceful community. Still no news on when we can expect to be let out. I've often seen and heard of these things happening, and obviously living in a nation's capital had thought of it being a possibility, but never actually expected anything like this to happen here. Thoughts?

Yeah I heard about this when I woke up this morning. This is akin to someone shooting a bunch of soldiers in Washington D.C.

Heard about it on the way to work. Thankfully I'm not downtown so I got to avoid most of the commotion.


But yeah, scary stuff. I've lived in Ottawa all my life too and I can't remember anything as serious as this. I hope the young guard who got shot pulls through and I really hope they catch the rest of the suspects.

Sounds completely terrifying tbh. Stay safe, as ever it'll be important to see what the attackers have to say about their intentions assuming they're caught alive

It has been confirmed that the guard shot at the memorial has passed away. Especially sad considering he was simply standing guard at a war memorial which is in no way a heavily militarized or aggressive area.

From what I read, he was a volunteer too.

Pretty insensitive, as I think the soldier died. Who was standing guard. Trying to protect people.

To be fair, you might have posted this slightly before he was confirmed dead. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.

That is absolutely horrific. The acoustics of the hallways only contribute to that. Scary stuff.
#17
From what I have heard, there are no suspects in custody. Police are still working on securing the downtown area. Makes me a little weary of my bikeride home from work once they let us out as I live in the downtown area.

Be safe and keep a vigilant eye open just in case.

Are you working in center town? Still on lock down? I'm over in lowertown near the market. It's pretty quiet around here although there's still some traffic on St. Pats...

I actually work in the Vanier towers. We are still in lockdown. Though I've heard that some buildings on Kent have had the lockdown lifted.

Stopped following it around an hour and a half ago. What's happening now? Did they catch the other 2 gunmen? (They were saying there were 3 last I heard)

hope you all get home without any issues. this happened in my area when i was little, though a tad different, and it was horrifying for everyone.
i don't know why i feel so dry
#26
I'm not downtown, but everyone around me is freaked out right now. Also, everyone seems to think they know exactly what happened.

I know this isn't the place, but any of you Ottawa folks want to get together and jam?

Downtown core still closed off. Other places are starting to have the lockdown lifted including schools etc...


All I know is the traffic in front of my work is nuts right now.

They're not really saying much but they're implying that there's 2 other gunmen and they're looking for them. 1 gunman killed and 1 soldier is dead.


Not sure if the source is okay but here's what they started posting on Twitter.

Police haven't released the identities of the deceased and the injured. It's all speculation for us right now.

I might make fun of your silly accents, but you know I love you guys. You're our friendly northern neighbors, and I don't like people messing with you. Keep your heads up, friends. My thoughts are with you.
#38
So insane. I used to live there not long ago and I've got a lot of friends up there. Hell, I've visited the areas of the shootings. I'm hoping there was only one gunman--the one who was killed--and that is it for the shootings.

Killer and deceased's identities released:

http://www.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canada/gunman-in-ottawa-attack-identified-as-michael-zehaf-bibeau-1.2065443

As for the other suspect (s) , still no word. Authorities advising people to stay away from the downtown area and for those of us who live here to stay inside. How reassuring :S
