A Canadian soldier standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa has been shot.
Shots have been also been fired down the street inside and outside of Parliament Hill. Witnesses describe the gunman as carrying a rifle and having long hair. As of this writing, he is still on the loose.
This incident comes only 48 hours after one Canadian soldier was killed and another was injured by a Muslim convert and ISIS sympathizer in Quebec who ran them over with his vehicle. The assailant, Martin Rouleau, was later shot and killed by police.
While it is possible these events might be unrelated, given the proximity of these incidents it is not unreasonable to believe this is the work of another ISIS sympathizer.
At this point, one can only hope the soldier survives his wounds, that no one else has been hurt and the gunman is apprehended.
