Canadian police have conceded there was only a single gunman in a terror attack that killed a soldier standing guard at Ottawa’s National War Memorial and then stormed parliament in a hail of gunfire.
Ottawa police constable Marc Soucy said that police are satisfied there was one attacker.
Police chief Charles Bordeleau said that “there is no longer a threat to public safety”.
Police said in the initial hours after the shootings that as many as two other gunmen may have taken part.
But as the day wore on, it appeared increasingly likely that the attack was the work of one person.
