Two people are dead after a overnight shooting at the ByWard Market in Ottawa. 

Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit confirmed the news on Twitter. 

Police closed the street and said it will most likely be for the day.

ByWard Market (sometimes called By Ward Market, Byward Market or simply The Market, Marché By in French) is a district in Lower Town (Ottawa, Ontario) located east of the government and business district, surrounding the market buildings and open-air market on George, York, ByWard and William Streets.

A witness, in the area at the time, says the incident allegedly started on Clarence St. It then escalated into a shooting infront of Ace Mercado and the Market Cleaners, eventually ending in the parking garage.
