Nathan Cirillo, the army reservist who was shot dead as he stood guard before the Tomb of the Unknown soldier. Flags were flown at half-staff to honor Cirillo, a 24-year-old a reservist from Hamilton, Ontario, whose shooting on Wednesday began an attack that ended with a lone gunman storming into Parliament and opening fire before being shot dead himself.

The body of the soldier fatally shot at the National War Memorial will travel the Highway of Heroes Friday, before he is laid to rest in Hamilton, Ont.
Cpl. Nathan Cirillo will be brought in a hearse from Ottawa, sources told CTV News’ Bob Fife.
Cirillo was shot while he was standing guard at the National War Memorial on Wednesday morning. Despite efforts to resuscitate Cirillo, the 24-year-old died of his wounds.
