Celebration turned to horror as a man opened fire during a victory speech by PQ leader Pauline Marois in Montreal Tuesday night.

The Parti Quebecois leader was in the middle of celebrating the PQ's minority win when a gunman opened fire, killing one and wounding another. The suspect, a man dressed in a housecoat, allegedly tried to set fire to the Metropolis concert hall where the PQ were holding their victory rally. Marois was not harmed.

The suspect allegedly yelled "The English are waking up!'' in French as police dragged him away from the scene.
