Description SPOT NEWS PHOTO FOR NNA: A distraught woman is attended to by a police officer after a man was gunned down at about 9:30pm in the Byward Market near the Moulin De Provence Cafe Photo by Wayne Cuddington / PostmediaDETAILS: I was sitting in my car on the second floor of the Byward Market parking garage editing a sports assignment on deadline when I heard two distinctive load noises that I thought were gunshots. I heard nothing more and decided to file the photos to the FTP server. Then within a couple minutes I heard a woman, who was looking over the edge from the area where I was parked, yell that someone had been shot. I locked up my car and looked over the edge of the lot and noticed a few people gathered around a person on the ground. I went down to the area and took photos as people assisted the wounded person. More people gathered, followed by police and paramedics. It was then that I noticed a very distraught woman a short distance away from the wounded person and a police officer walk over to her to offer support. After the man was taken away by ambulance, I contacted the office to provide as much eye witness as I could and let them know that I was filing photos as soon as possible.
