Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, born Michael Joseph Hall, 32, was shot dead after opening fire at Parliament Hill. He was born in Quebec but reportedly recently had converted to Islam.

He shot reserve soldier Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial before running inside Parliament and exchanging gunfire with guards. Heroic Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms, shot him dead. Corporal Cirillo was a 24-year-old father of a young son.

Sources told the Globe and Mail that Zehaf-Bibeau had been designated "high-risk traveler" and that the government had seized his passport. His attack comes just two days after another Canadian soldier was killed in Quebec by a man with jihadist sympathies.
