The NHL is continuing to monitor the situation in Ottawa, where police are investigating multiple shooting incidents in the downtown area.

The Senators are scheduled to host the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight at the Canadian Tire Centre, which is located around 17 miles southwest of the area police have locked down.

One shooter is reportedly dead, another (or others) may still be active.

The following footage was captured inside Parliament Hill:

The NHL postponed a game on Apr. 15, 2013, between the Bruins and Senators after the Boston Marathon bombings, and a game on Apr. 19, 2013, between the Bruins and Penguins as the manhunt for the remaining bombing suspect continued.
