Suspect ID’ed in Canadian Parliament Attack
Authorities have identified the shooter at the Canadian Parliament building as 32-year-old Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
A government official confirms to Fox News that investigators believe Zehaf-Bibeau changed his name from Michael Joseph Hall. U.S. agencies have been advised that the shooter was believed to be a Canadian convert to Islam, and they think he was from Quebec.
Local reports say Canadian authorities knew he was designated a high-risk traveler and that his passport had recently been confiscated.
Authorities still do not know the motive behind the attack, which left one soldier dead.
A bulletin sent out to U.S. authorities asks intelligence officials and the FBI to run his name through databases to see if he was on their radar.
Separately, a counter-terrorism force tells Fox News that there was a spike in ISIS-related chatter targeting Canada. The chatter focused on the nation’s decision to join the anti-ISIS coalition.
