8. Questions swirl over how close shooter got to Pauline Marois

MONTREAL—His name is Richard Henry Bain. His age is 62. He runs a fishing lodge near Mont Tremblant.

But those are the only answers to the mounting questions surrounding the fatal shooting that marred Tuesday night’s Parti Québécois election victory.

Montreal Police, in concert with the Sûrete du Quebec, the force charged with protecting Quebec Premier-elect Pauline Marois, have opened a vast investigation into the shooting that killed one, injured a second and sent a third to hospital in a state of shock.

The images are disturbing. The shooter was wearing a black balaclava and eyeglasses, a black shirt and shorts covered by a blue bathrobe. Police say the suspect has been taken to hospital for unspecified treatment.

Definitely vexed, possibly deranged, the man was quickly wrestled to the ground by uniformed officers and led away in handcuffs, while shouting, “The English are rising up.”

Based on the limited information that has emerged and the circumstances, one can reasonably conclude that a political assassination was narrowly averted.

But how did the shooter get so close?
