The gunman then commandeered an idling ministerial car and drove to nearby Parliament Hill's Centre Block, where he injured a guard at the front doors, then engaged security forces in a gunfight before being killed by sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers in the Hall of Honor near the unlocked meeting rooms where Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Opposition Leader Tom Mulcair were addressing their respective caucuses. Parliament Hill reporter Murray Brewster said witnesses reported the gunman was carrying a shotgun and was wearing a mask.
