ne person has been shot dead in Quebec and another wounded after a gunman entered the venue where Pauline Marois, the separatist Parti Quebecois leader who had just become the Canadian province's premier-elect, was giving her victory speech.
Voters in the French-speaking province on Tuesday ousted the governing Liberals and installed the Parti Quebecois as a minority government – in the process making Marois the first female premier of Quebec.
Around midnight, two bodyguards abruptly interrupted Marois's victory speech, bundling her into the backstage area after a deafening boom rang out.
According to Montreal police, one 45-year-old man was fatally shot and a 30-year-old man was in critical condition after a man in his 50s entered the back door of Montreal's Metropolis concert hall, and shot them. He also started a fire on the premises. A spokesman for the force added that another man was being treated in hospital for "nervous shock".
