Several shots have been fired at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, just steps from the nation’s parliament.

Witnesses reported seeing a man running toward the government buildings, where more shots were fired inside, according to witnesses.

A soldier has been wounded in the attack, Canadian media report.

The incident came hours after Canada raised its terror threat level from low to medium.

A soldier was killed in a hit-and-run earlier in the week.

Additional shots were fired inside the parliament buildings, multiple news agencies and eyewitnesses reported.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper “is safe and has left Parliament Hill”, his director of communications wrote on Twitter.
