The soldier who was shot dead outside Canada’s parliament building has been named locally as Nathan Cirillo.
A Facebook page was set up named Rest In Peace Cpl Nathan Cirillo, which has already been looked at by thousands.
One message, from Bob Rodkin, read: ‘RIP Nathan. Thank you for your service and the ultimate sacrifice. So tragic, so unnecessary. My prayers go out for you and to your family, friends and colleagues.’
Another message, from Olivia Marie, said: ‘RIP Nathan! Thank you for defending our country, your son is so proud of you. I miss you.’
Islamic militants are believed to be behind a terror attack that left the country’s capital in lockdown.
Gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau fired 30 times as people fled the building by climbing down scaffolding put up for repair works.
MPs barricaded themselves in the chamber with chairs before the intruder was shot dead outside the room where prime minister Stephen Harper was holding a cabinet meeting.
More shots were reportedly heard nearby – and police said they were hunting ‘more than one individual’.
The killer began by shooting Cpl Nathan Cirillo, a member of the honour guard watching over Canada’s tomb of the unknown soldier.
