We're told to get in a corner.

It looks like two down. We don't know conditions yet.

We're barricading ourselves in the caf.

Security confirmed: active shooter IN the building.

"Shots are fired outside Canadian parliament in Ottawa and a soldier is wounded, local media report"

Multiple shots have been fired at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, just steps from the nation's parliament.
The gunman is still on the loose and a soldier has been wounded, according to Canadian media.
The incident comes amid the nation's raising of its terror threat level from low to medium.

Watching live pictures of SWAT on Sky. Reporter is excitedly saying SF on scene. If he doesn't calm down soon, he'll have an aneurysm.

Forgive ignorance, but is that two different locations, or did the shooter leg it from one location to the other?

Apparently he shot a soldier at the war memorial and somehow legged it 0.5k to the other building.
 
Distance between War Memorial and Ottawa Parliament.
