Kevin Vickers, the Canadian Parliament's Sergeant-At-Arms, received a long standing ovation as he led the procession into the House of Commons Thursday Morning. As lawmakers clapped, the man credited with with taking down a gunman at Canada's Parliament appeared emotional.

Vickers, who is notoriously humble, said in a statement that he was "very touched" by the attention but made sure to emphasize that he has "the support of a remarkable security team that is committed to ensuring the safety of Members, employees and visitors" to Parliament.

"Yesterday, during extraordinary circumstances, security personnel demonstrated professionalism and courage. I am grateful and proud to be part of this team," he said.

He also said that he wanted to extend "our deepest condolences" to the family of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, who was shot and killed by the gunman as he stood guard at the National War Memorial near Parliament.

Though it has not been confirmed that Vickers is the one who took down the shooter, one member of Parliament tweeted this:
