Description: "10/22/2014: Michel Zehaf-Bibeau, Canadian citizen aged 32, opened fire on the two sentries on guard at the National War Memorial (Cenotaph) in Ottawa. One sentry escaped the fire, but Corporal Nathan Cirillo was shot and later pronounced dead. Zehaf-Bibeau had been working alone, and with ideological and political motives, as documented in a pre-attack video recording he made of himself. Following the attack, he made his way to Parliament hill in a beige vehicle where he engaged in crossfire and was fatally shot. "
