A gunman brought tragedy to a victory speech by Quebec's new premier on Tuesday night, killing one person and critically wounding another. Pauline Marois, elected as the first woman premier in the province, was immediately taken off the stage when gunfire broke out. She wasn't harmed. Police arrested a suspect, whose name has not been released. As he was taken into the police car, he shouted in French, "The English are waking up!" It is not clear who the gunman was targeting.
