Shooting occurred during separatist leader's rally

A man fired a gun 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 (PQ), was whisked off the stage and uninjured.

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