Canada's Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers stands as he is applauded in the House of Commons in Ottawa on Thursday. Vickers was hailed as a hero for shooting the gunman during an attack on the Parliament the day before.

The 58-year-old killed the suspect and then returned to guard lawmakers from possible other suspects, said Member of Parliament Paul Dewar.
