            ByWard Market businesses shaken by deadly shootings

            Some business owners in the ByWard Market, where one man was killed and another wounded before the suspected gunman died in a shootout with a police officer early Saturday morning, are calling on police to step up their presence in the neighbourhood.

            Ottawa police generally step up foot patrols of the ByWard Market and Lowertown areas during the summer months, and the force said Monday that this year it will occur before the end of June to coincide with the standard influx of tourists.

            But it would be better to have more officers in the area year-round, business owners say, not just during summer.
