‘Act of gratuitous violence’: Two shot, one killed at Pauline Marois’ PQ victory party
MONTREAL — Parti Québécois leader Pauline Marois was abruptly dragged off stage by bodyguards midway through her victory speech Tuesday after a 62-year-old man allegedly opened fire into the theatre where she was speaking.

The shooting left one victim dead and a second in critical condition. Because of the possibility that Marois herself may have been the target of the shooting, the Quebec Provincial Police have taken control of the investigation.

There appeared to be some linguistic link to the attack. When police took the suspected shooter away, the ranting man declared, “The English are waking up.” (The Canadian Press/Reuters)
