    MONTREAL—The suspect in a hit-and-run that injured two Canadian soldiers in Quebec — an incident identified as a possible terror attack — is fighting for his life in hospital after being shot several times by police.

    The shocking incident, which occurred at about noon Monday in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, also sent the two Canadian Armed Forces personnel to hospital with one fighting for his life and the other having suffered minor injuries, according to the Quebec provincial police.

    The two soldiers were reportedly walking through the parking lot of a shopping centre located less than three kilometres from the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean, the French-language university run by the Department of National Defence, when they were run down by a driver.

    A police chase ensued and the car drove into a ditch after the driver lost control of the vehicle, police said.

    Witnesses who spoke with the TVA network Monday afternoon said they saw a man emerge from the flipped vehicle that was lying in a ditch on the side of the road. The man had his hands in the air and was walking toward police when at least one officer opened fire on the suspect. The witnesses said they heard up to seven gunshots.

    TVA also showed images of a knife with an elaborate handle lodged into the ground near where the incident occurred.

    In the House of Commons, Prime Minister Stephen Harper was asked about reports of a possible terror attack that had occurred in Quebec.

    He said: “We are aware of these reports and they are obviously extremely troubling. First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We’re closely monitoring the situation and obviously we will make available all of the resources of the federal government.”

    The provincial police, which have taken responsibility for the investigation, said it was too early to comment on the cause of the hit-and-run or the motivations of the suspect.

    But Canada’s top general has already warned that military personnel in Canada could be at risk because of Ottawa’s decision to launch combat operations against Islamic State extremists in Iraq.

    When the first contingent of military personnel headed to Kuwait from CFB Trenton last week, military officials barred the media from identifying any of the soldiers for fear they could be a target.

    “It’s a recognition I think that we want to minimize any risks at all with being posted into this deployment,” Gen. Tom Lawson, chief of defence staff, told a briefing.

    The Islamic State “has made it clear they would aspire to present a threat” to the citizens of those nations that have joined the coalition efforts, he said.

    “We watch that very closely,” Lawson said.

    “There is no indication of direct threats yet but I think we are doing everything we can to ensure that we minimize any threats at all,” he said
