Screen grab: Gunman enters Parliament building
OTTAWA, Ontario -- Canadian police released surveillance video Thursday of the gunman accused of fatally shooting a soldier at a war memorial in Ottawa and said the suspect had recently applied for a passport and was "hoping to leave for Syria."
Royal Canadian Mounted Police commissioner Bob Paulson also says authorities had not been watching the gunman in the weeks before the deadly attack on a soldier at a war memorial on Ottawa on Wednesday.
Michael Joseph Zehaf-Bibeau, a 32-year-old petty criminal, then stormed the nearby Parliament building, where he was shot to death.
