Intense gunfire battle in Canada: Soldier killed (Watch Report)

A gunman shot and killed a soldier at a war memorial in Ottawa, before police engaged in a gun battle inside the parliament building.

Police confirmed a gunman was shot dead, but Canada’s capital remained on alert through much of the day.

PM Stephen Harper said the country “would not be intimidated” by violence.

The shooting came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level. On Monday another soldier was killed in a hit-and-run attack by a Muslim convert.
