The call comes from in front of the Chateau Laurier hotel near Parliament Hill and the National War Memorial. A soldier was shot and killed at the memorial during a shooting spree that saw gunfire ring out within the halls of Parliament.
"We'll need you for a code 4 VSA near the Chateau Laurier," a man says on the call. "Cenotaph War Memorial, call for shots fired, we may have multiple patients. One soldier has been hit."
A "code 4 VSA" is commonly used for "vital signs absent."
The Globe and Mail confirmed that the soldier killed at the War Memorial was Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.
