The shooting happened around 8 a.m. at a home in Canada’s capital city. Police are still searching for the shooter.
One person was killed and three others were wounded, including a teenager, in what police called a targeted shooting Wednesday morning at home in the Canadian capital Ottawa.

The incident occurred around 07:30 on Gilmour Street, near Parliament Hill, where the Canadian Parliament is located, according to Ottawa police.

When police arrived at the house, they found four people inside with a gunshot wound, police said in a brief press conference. One person died at the scene, police said. A child of 15 years old was taken to CHEO, hospital and pediatric research centers, in stable condition, said a hospital spokesman.

Two others were also taken to hospitals, according to police.

Authorities said on Twitter that they were still looking for the suspect and “believe that the shooting was targeted.”

“A coordinated response is in progress. Please avoid the area,” police said in a tweet earlier.

Parliament of Canada Protective Services sent a message to the federal government employees warning them to “be vigilant,” reported CBC News.
