    A soldier was shot outside the war memorial that is situated just in front of Parliament Hill, and then t least 30 shots have been heard ON the hill.

    Many of my friends are on lockdown as rumours of two shooters being on the loose are reported. It's rumoured that one was killed, but that there may be another.

    Currently live coverage here on BBC News 24.

    Reuters reporting one gunman shot dead inside the parliament building. The BBC are talking to someone in the building/area - not sure where but they had to break off whilst police checked their office.

    Gunman sought after soldier shot at war memorial near Canadian Parliament building

    Gunshots rang out at Canada's Parliament building Wednesday, with one soldier guarding the nearby National War Memorial shot and a gunman on the loose just days after a terror attack in Quebec shook the nation, officials said.

    Shots were reported inside the building, in Ottawa, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper was whisked away to a safe location as Royal Canadian Mounted Police converged on the complex in a hunt for the shooter, who was described as having long, black hair and toting a rifle or shotgun. Bernard Trottier, a Toronto-area MP, tweeted that the gunman inside Centre Block "has been shot and killed” but that could not be confirmed.

    Harper “is safe and has left Parliament Hill,” Jason MacDonald, his director of communications, said via Twitter.

    just an fyi, I'm not sure they've mentioned this on the news. But it does give you a moment to pause. There were the two soldiers run down yesterday in Canada, by the ISIS sympathizer. Previously it was the beheading of the soldier walking down the street. Now this.

    Just something to think about

    On FOX News right now, they're saying there was also shooting at the Mall close to Parliament. So there are multiple shooters running around.

    CNN speaking to McGinty (not sure who this is) - saw an abandoned car this morning, parked askew, no plates. Also says that shots reported at a mall not far away?

    No link. watching CNN.

    I am aware of yesterday's attacks...and now this.

    The PM is safe. He was in Parliament building but has been evacuate.

    New reports that shots have been reported at the mall . Sounds like the Redeu is the name but I'm sure I've got the name wrong.

    Some folks have evac'd from Parliament.

    I am praying. My heart is with my northern neighbors.
