FBI Reportedly Raises Alert Level at Field Offices After Canada Shooting

The FBI has reportedly raised its alert level today at field offices in response to the shooting earlier in Ottawa, outside the Canadian parliament:

The FBI raised the alert level partly due to recent chatter picked up of ISIS planning attacks on the United States. Though they have yet to comment on the matter:

NORAD has also raised its alert posture and has more planes on standby in case they’re needed.

UPDATE — 2:59 p.m. ET: Security has also been raised at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery.
