After a police chase, the suspect was shot and killed. Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced that the suspect 'was known to Federal authorities' and 'authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized.' A neighbor noticed that  Rouleau grew out his beard and began wearing loose-fitting Muslim clothing, and Roleau's father was worried as he became increasingly radicalized and "tried everything," to help him. The International Business Times called the suspect a ISIS Lone Wolf killer who was a depressed conspiracy theorist recently drawn to radical Islam. Two days later another muslim convert who also had his passport seized killed a soldier and shot up Parliment in Ottawa. Glenn Greenwald argues that attack against soldiers such as in Woolwich London and Fort Hood should not be called terrorism as he has supported armed resistance against imperialist wars.
