2012 Montreal shooting

On the night of September 4, 2012, the Parti Québécois won the Quebec general election, with a minority government. Party leader Pauline Marois was partway through her victory speech to her supporters, gathered at the Métropolis in downtown Montreal, when a masked man named Richard Henry Bain approached the building and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing one stage technician and injuring another. Bain then attempted to set fire to the building, but was quickly tackled and apprehended by Montreal police, in a nearby alley. In 2016, Bain was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to twenty years in prison.
