Several shots have been fired outside and inside Canada parliament

BREAKING.Several shots have been fired outside and inside the nation's parliament in Ottawa. Witnesses reported seeing a gunman firing at the Ottawa War Memorial and then running toward the government buildings, where more shots were heard. A soldier has been wounded in the attack, Canadian media report.
The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level from low to medium. A soldier was killed in a hit-and-run earlier in the week. "Shots fired at War Memorial at 9:52am today; one person injured," Ottawa Police tweeted on Wednesday as a witness reported seeing authorities search from room to room for the suspect. The gunman fired on soldiers guarding Canada's main war memorial and then ran into the parliament.
