As the extraordinary events in Ottawa move into late afternoon security officials are still going door-to-door making sure everyone is safe.
Both the Ottawa Police and RCMP are considering the situation dynamic and unfolding. This after a soldier was shot at the War Memorial and later died.
That prompted a full lock-down of Parliament and surrounding areas including downtown Ottawa.
One shooter has been killed – it’s still not clear how many others there may be. He was shot inside the Centre Block of Parliament.
Police searched cars leaving Ottawa trying to go to Quebec. Schools were locked down.
Our local MP Alex Atamanenko is still locked down with colleagues and describes the situation.
