A video showing Michael Zehaf Bibeau's first moments inside the Centre Block is being kept secret even as reports are to be made public Wednesday detailing the security response on the day of Parliament Hill shooting.

Cameras near the front door of the Centre Block captured Zehaf Bibeau wrestling with a House of Commons security guard and shooting at other guards before sprinting down the Hall of Honour, according to two sources with knowledge of the video.

There are no cameras in the hall itself, which runs between the Conservative and NDP caucus rooms.

Zehaf Bibeau was killed in a shootout with security forces at the end of the hall.

The Ontario Provincial Police had access to the video as part of its multi-pronged investigation into the actions of security forces on the day of the shooting.


Heather Bradley, a spokeswoman for House of Commons Speaker Andrew Scheer, says the video won’t be made public for security reasons.
