Photos: Shooting at Parti Quebecois victory rally in Montreal

A gunman, wearing a blue bathrobe opened fire during a midnight victory rally for Quebec’s new premier, killing one person and wounding another. The new premier, Pauline Marois of the separatist Parti Quebecois, was whisked off the stage by guards while giving her speech and uninjured. It was not clear if the gunman was trying to shoot Marois, whose party favors separation for the French-speaking province from Canada. A man was arrested by police outside the Parti Quebecois victory rally in Montreal on Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012. Police identified the gunman only as a 62-year-old man, and were still questioning him Wednesday morning.
