OTTAWA, Ontario (AP):

Police say a Canadian soldier who was shot as he stood guard at a war memorial in the country's capital has died.

Ottawa police spokesman Chuck Benoit says a suspected gunman also is dead.

Benoit said authorities believe there were three gunmen involved in three shootings this morning, all within less than a mile from each other in downtown Ottawa.

"Two others were being sought for on land," Benoit said.

The shootings happened at the war memorial, on Parliament Hill and at a nearby shopping mall.
