    A shooting at a Canadian political event left one person dead and one in critical condition, according to police in Quebec. The Tuesday-night shooting came as Pauline Marois, soon to be Quebec’s first female premier, took the stage at a gathering on Tuesday night. A suspect who is thought to be about 50 years old was taken into police custody, and officers say that he was found to be in possession of more than one gun at the time of the incident. The man reportedly shouted “The English are waking up!” in French as he was taken away by police. Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian Lafreniere said that the shooter tried to set a fire in a doorway as he attempted his escape, but it was put out by police.
