Major stuff going down in my city, Ottawa.
Police are expanding their perimeter around Parliament Hill and the National War Memorial after at least two people were shot Wednesday morning.
Journalists and members of the public have, as of 11:20 a.m., been herded inside buildings in the area of the shooting and there are several road closures around the area. The area in front of Parliament Hill and the War Memorial is cordoned off behind police tape, including Wellington St., and Elgin St. near the monument.
Police have not confirmed whether they believe all suspects have been accounted for. However, police are telling the public and journalists that they should move back and remain in protected areas for their own safety.
Buildings on Parliament Hill and many facing the Hill are on lockdown.
Reports say the nearby Rideau Centre and the U.S. Embassy were also on lockdown. 1310News is reporting bridges in the area of Parliament Hill connecting Ottawa and Gatineau, are also closed.
