A man believed to be a member of the Canadian Forces has been shot at the country’s National War Memorial in Ottawa, and there are reports of gunfire inside the halls of the parliament building.

Police in the capital confirmed they had a call at 9.52am local time with a report of shots fired.

The gunman reportedly ran toward Parliament Hill, which is under lockdown.

Emergency responders are on the scene.

The incident comes just two days after two Canadian soldiers were run over, and one of them killed, in Quebec by a man with jihadist sympathies.
