A gunman (a Muslim convert, who woulda figured?) shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, an army reservist standing guard at the National War Memorial, and then ran into the Parliament building, where he himself was shot and killed by House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers.
May God bless the soul of Cpl. Cirillo, and his family and friends. And hats off to Mr. Vickers, for stopping the terrorist before he spilled any more blood.
