Surveillance video shown by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at a news conference on Thursday, revealed the sequence of events as a suspected gunman carried out an attack on Parliament the day before.

Minutes before, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, had shot dead a soldier at Ottawa’s war memorial near parliament.

Zehaf-Bibeau was ultimately shot dead by Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers.

Police said that the he was not on a list of known high-risk travelers, but had links to extremist elements. He had recently applied for a passport and intended to travel to Syria.

Paulson said Zehaf-Bibeau was not among the 90 individuals known to Canadian security forces as a “high-risk traveler”, contrary to earlier reports.

PM Stephen Harper has vowed to strengthen the nation’s anti-terrorism laws, and has said Canada will not be intimidated by such violence, nor swayed from its role fighting IS in Iraq alongside the US military.

He is now under 24-hour protection, authorities have said.
