Earlier today multiple shooters were reported in Ottawa, Canada, where a soldier guarding the Parliament National War Memorial was shot dead. Police report that there have been two shootings, one located near the war memorial and the other located inside the Parliament building. Officially one shooter is dead and police are still investigating motives. KTSW spoke with David Clement, a Canadian citizen located in Toronto, Ontario who reports that Ottawa is under lockdown.

As a part of Texas State’s Mass Communication Week, the School of Journalism and Mass Communication will host a workshop on why to go to grad school at 5:30 p.m. in Old Main. The workshop includes a discussion from current graduate students on their experiences. Sandy Rao, workshop moderator and graduate adviser, said considering going to grad school is important. “First of all, I think that the undergraduate students focus mostly on general studies requirements the first two years and they have only (the) next two years to focus on their area of specialization,” Rao said. “(A)t the undergraduate level they don’t get to spend enough time going deep into the area of their interest and graduate studies provide them with this opportunity.”

Award-winning fiction writer Kenneth Womack will visit The Wittliff Collections at Texas State for a presentation and book signing of “The Beatles Encyclopedia: Everything Fab Four” at 3:30 p.m. on November 3. Womack is the author of three novels and will hold a Q&A session and a book sale during the event.  For more information about this event, visit the Wittliff Collection’s website.

The City of Austin Animal Services Office will be providing free rabies vaccinations on from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday. As required by Texas law, an owner of a dog or cat must get their pet vaccinated. Vaccinations are for dogs and cats 12 weeks of age and older. Puppies and kittens younger than 12 weeks will be provided free identification tags and registered in the Animal Services Database so that they can be reunited with their owners if lost. The City of Austin Animal Services Office conducts four free clinics throughout the year.
