Ottawa, Canada Shooting at Parliament Building VIDEO – Corporal Nathan Cirillo murdered

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a 32 year old male, stormed Canada’s Parliament building with a rifle yesterday and shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo before being gunned down by 58 year old security guard Kevin Vickers.

Police and security guards were already chasing Zehaf-Bibeau when he passed Vickers’ office. Vickers then pulled out his handgun and fired several shots at the man, resulting in his death.

James Moore, Canada’s Minister of Industry, tweeted:

Susan Bibeau, the gunman’s mom, who works at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada, has had a hard time explaining why the event occurred. Bibeau noted that her son didn’t fit in well with others, which may have been related to why he stormed the building and shot Corporal Cirillo.

Authorities are also finding it difficult to establish a motive, but state that radicalization played a part. It has been mentioned that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau converted to the Islamic faith not long before the incident.

A video of the shooting has been released to the public, in which you can hear the several shots fired during the attack.
