As far as I know, there's only been one (non-fatal) casualty; a soldier at the National War Memorial on Parliament Hill.

One shooter is reported to be neutralized (ETA: confirmed killed), but there's additional reports of shots fired outside of the Chateau Laurier. Downtown Ottawa is going into lockdown atm.

Police are now confirming a 3rd shooting incident at the Rideau Centre - a mall about a 10-15m walk east of Parliament.

ETA: A Minister is now reporting that one of the soldiers shot at the War Monument has died :(
