SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU, Que. - Quebec provincial police say a motorist is dead from gunfire after he struck two members of the Canadian Forces with his car in an incident an MP cited in the Commons as a "possible terror attack."

Lt. Michel Brunet says the 25-year-old man died a few hours after being shot in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, southeast of Montreal.

Police say one of the two Canadian Forces members is in critical condition, while the other's injuries are less serious.

News of the incident surfaced later in the Commons when Conservative MP Randy Hoback asked Prime Minister Stephen Harper to update MPs about "unconfirmed reports of a possible terror attack" against two members of the Canadian Forces.

Harper said he was aware of the reports and called them "extremely troubling."
