One Killed and Another Wounded at Victory Speech in Quebec

A man fired a gun during a midnight victory rally for Quebec's new premier, killing one person and wounding another.

It was not clear if the gunman was trying to shoot Marois, whose party favours separation for the French-speaking province from Canada.
