CHRIS UHLMANN: Parts of the Canadian capital, Ottawa, are in lockdown after a gunman shot and killed a soldier at a war memorial, then it's believed the same man ran into the nearby parliament and exchanged gunfire with police. The gunman was also killed.

Ottawa has now been flooded by police and members of the armed forces taking part in a massive manhunt for other suspects.

North America correspondent Michael Vincent reports.

MICHAEL VINCENT: The corridors of Canada's parliament have echoed to the sounds of gunfire.

A reporter for the Globe and Mail newspaper captured the moment when armed police and parliamentary guards crept down a hallway towards a suspected gunman.

(Sound of shouting and multiple gunshots)

MICHAEL VINCENT: Police have now confirmed the suspect is dead.

MPs had been at first locked in their rooms - hundreds had been taking part in weekly meetings. They were then evacuated from the building.

Directly next to the parliament is the nation's war memorial. Today's first victim was a soldier who had been on guard and was shot.

Rivo Namic told reporters about that first suspect.

RIVO NAMIC: Just, just five, 10 minutes ago I was walking along the front of the war memorial. I was just passing, just over here, and all of a sudden just heard a shot. Turned around and there was a guy with a rifle just around on the back corner.

And just pow, pow. And then I saw one of the other armed forces guys just running and he was running, he barrelled over, just ran right over. The other guy just dropped and then the other one just run over. I just started running at that, enough to look back to just dive underneath and then I mainly called 911.

MICHAEL VINCENT: Downtown Ottawa has been locked down as reports mounted of several suspects taking part in the attack.

Police then began an operation to clear nearby buildings around the parliament.

CHRIS UHLMANN: And our North America correspondent Michael Vincent joins me now.

And, Michael, there's been another police briefing since you filed that report, do we know much more?

MICHAEL VINCENT: No we don't, Chris. It's been more than seven hours since, seven and a half hours since this incident began and people still don't know the motive for this shooter, they don't who this shooter is and they haven't been told even what gun was used.

All we do know is that two people have been shot and killed - one at the war memorial, a soldier, one inside the parliament, the suspected gunman.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police say the situation is fluid and ongoing and the prime minister has issued a statement, his office has issued a statement saying while the facts are still being gathered he's condemned this despicable attack.

CHRIS UHLMANN: So clearly, we're not sure whether or not there might be other gunmen? Police are searching for them and there's been a lot of police activity away from the parliament.

MICHAEL VINCENT: Yeah, it's been quite an incredible situation where you've had police en masse and other officials descend on the parliament area, which is quite a large area - the central parliament building, the east block and the west block, and then the war memorial on another side and open grounds and forest even around that; and then the downtown area of Ottawa which has been cordoned off, block by block, been growing every hour.

Police going into buildings, searching, at some stages we've seen them pointing, you know, Canadian TV showed them pointing at rooftops, hiding behind armoured vehicles, hiding behind, taking, you know, protection behind various cars in the downtown area, worried about being potentially shot at from any angle.

And this is sort of the confusion that reports have come in of even a shopping centre being potentially a target. That's now been cleared but it was shut down for a while.

Schools in the area are all on lockdown. The whole area has been flooded with police and armed forces. And there still isn't a clear sign yet, at least from the police, that the situation is even over. They won't even confirm, for example, that the man at the war memorial was the same man that entered the parliament building.

CHRIS UHLMANN: Michael Vincent, thank you.
