Possible terror link to Ottawa attack?

(CNN) – Ottawa police confirmed to CNN that they are looking for more than one suspect in connection with multiple shootings around Ottawa's downtown area.

There has been no official word that the suspects have ties to extremist groups.

But some Canadian officials aren't waiting for law enforcement officials to label this an act of terror. Conservative Cabinet Minister Jason Kenney sent a tweet Wednesday, saying on part: "Canada will not be terrorized or intimidated."


There have been calls by ISIS for lone wolf attacks against Westerners. Wednesday's incident comes just days after a man ran down two Canadian soldiers near Montreal.That suspect had reportedly been arrested and had his passport yanked after he attempted to travel to Syria.

What are investigators of today's attack doing now?

Former CIA counterterrorism official Phil Mudd and CNN terror analyst Paul Cruickshank discuss.
