On October 22nd, a gunman opened fire at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, killing ceremonial Honor Guard reservist Corporal Nathan Cirillo. 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. Tony Zobl worked across the street from the National War Memorial and said he saw a man wearing a mask shoot the honor guard point blank.
