The suspected shooter in Wednesday’s attack on Canada’s parliament had been designated a “high-risk traveler” by the government. According to 680News Toronto, a Canadian federal official confirmed Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a man in his early 30s, is responsible for killing Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and firing on Parliament. The government had seized Zehaf-Bibeau’s passport, just as it had with Martin Rouleau-Couture, the Quebecker who ran down two Canadian soldiers in his car on Monday. Zehaf-Bibeau had a record of petty crimes in Quebec, including possession of drugs, credit-card forgery, and robbery. He also was charged with robbery in Vancouver in 2011. Some U.S. documents indicate Zehaf-Bibeau was born Michael Joseph Hall. Two U.S. officials said Zehaf-Bibeau is a convert to Islam. Canadian officials have not confirmed whether there was another gunman in the attack.
