Shooting at Quebec Election Rally

I did not hear about this until someone mentioned it to me after my swim. There was a shooting at a rally following the Parti Quebecois' election victory last night. As Premier-elect Pauline Marois spoke, shots broke out resulting in one death and one person being injured.

The suspect was detained and has been identified as a fishing lodge owner from Mount-Tremblant. He was alleged to have to spoken about an awakening of Quebec's Anglophones. But details are sketchy.

Under the circumstances, it could have been much worse. Still, it is a shame that it happened at all.
