Hero Who Took Down Terrorist Gets Standing Ovation

Hero Who Took Down Terrorist Gets Standing Ovation

A standing ovation for the hero who took down a terrorist. Members of Canada's Parliament applauded for over three minutes as tears rolled down the cheeks of 58-year-old sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers.

Then, everyone in the chamber joined in singing Canada's national anthem:

Vickers shot the terrorist dead who stormed parliament yesterday. A video shows him gun in hand, searching the hallways for more bad guys.

The white-haired grandfather usually holds a golden ceremonial scepter, but he's also a decorated veteran of the royal Canadian Mounted Police, the fabled “Mounties.”

Tensions are still running high in Ottawa.

The terror group ISIS tweeted a photo of the shooter who cops now say acted alone. He was identified as 32-year-old Canadian Michael Joseph Hall, also known as Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a recent Muslim convert with a long rap sheet.

Just hours after the terror attack on Canada, there was another shocking security breech at the White House.

A dramatic video shows the latest intruder to jump the White House fence as he's brought down by two attack dogs.

The intruder kicked the first dog, then a second dog knocked him to the ground as guards rushed in.

The White House fence jumper is identified as 23-year-old Dominic Adesanya of Bel Air, Maryland.  He posted a shirtless photo on Instagram as well as one that shows him wearing a gas mask. His father says he has mental problems.

President Obama was inside the White House during the incident.

Just last month, a troubled Iraq war veteran also jumped the fence and actually made it all the way inside the White House before he was finally brought down by the Secret Service.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino says the White House fence must change. 

Right now, it's 7-and-a-half-feet high, but, security experts say it should be at least 12 feet high and curved at the top to discourage fence jumpers.

Bongino told INSIDE EDITION, "Lets just fix the fence and protect the President, simple as that. I can't say this in strong enough terms, the fence is a security disaster, it is practically an invitation to leap over it.”
