The mother of the man accused of killing a soldier at the National War Memorial before opening fire in Parliament said she is crying for the victims of the shooting, not her son.

In a brief and tear-filled telephone call Thursday, Susan Bibeau told the Associated Press she did not know what to say to those hurt in the attack.

“Can you ever explain something like this?” she said. “We are sorry.”

Authorities have identified the shooter as Michael Zehaf Bibeau, who was known to police in Montreal and Vancouver.

He is suspected of shooting and killing Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a reservist from Hamilton who was standing guard at the National War Memorial, before opening fire in the halls of Parliament.

Zehaf Bibeau was then killed in a gunfight in the Centre Block.
