President Barack Obama offered his condolences to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper over the "tragic" attack near parliament and pledged continued security coordination with Ottawa.

Obama said after speaking with Harper by telephone that it remained unclear whether the shooting - which left a soldier dead - was the act of a "lone wolf" assailant or was rather part of a larger plan.

Harper was meeting with lawmakers at the Canadian parliament when a gunman stormed into the building after shooting a soldier guarding a nearby war memorial.

Obama pledged to ensure that US and Canadian "national security teams are coordinating very closely," especially given their long common border.
