1. CANADA SHOOTING
Questions remain: First a soldier guarding a hallowed war memorial was gunned down in Canada’s capital. Then shots erupted in the halls of the country’s Parliament minutes later. The two shootings in Ottawa yesterday left lawmakers barricaded inside offices and parts of the city on lockdown for hours as police searched for suspects. Ottawa Police lifted the lockdown last night and said there was no longer a danger to the public. But still, there are plenty of questions. Are more attacks coming? Is there another gunmen? Did ISIS have a hand in this?
2. FENCE JUMPER
Not again!: A man jumped over the White House fence last night – but he barely made it onto the lawn before he was subdued as he fought two police dogs. It’s the second such incident in the last month. If you remember, in mid-September, a man caled a fence and, armed with a knife, made it into the White House before he was detained.
3. FERGUSON PROTESTS
Tinderbox: Ferguson protests heated up again last night after the St. Louis Post-Dispatch published a leaked autopsy report that appeared to lend credence to the officer’s account that Michael Brown was shot when he reached for the officer’s gun. Police and protesters clashed last night, with several detentions.
