TORONTO TERROR? Gunman Attacks Restaurant, Leaves 2 Dead and 12 Injured

Toronto hospitals are still treating a number of people for injuries after a gunman opened fire on a strip of Danforth Avenue restaurants on Sunday night. "My thoughts are with everyone affected by the awful tragedy on the Danforth last night in Toronto, and may the injured make a full recovery", Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted Monday morning.

Video from one witness showed a man dressed in black firing three shots from the pavement into at least one shop or restaurant.

Suddenly, she and the other customers were told to run to the back of the restaurant. "He turned around and shot her point blank, two or three times". Toronto police tweeted saying he shooter has been killed.

Reese Fallon, 18, was identified as one of the victims killed in the Toronto shooting.

Witnesses in the area, Danforth and Logan avenues in Toronto's east end, heard multiple shots fired.

The young girl is in critical condition, while the condition of the rest of the victims was not known yet, police spokesman Mark Pugash says.

One of the 14 victims, a woman, has since died.

Canada traditionally has relatively low levels of gun violence, particularly compared with its neighbour the United States.

Toronto is still reeling from another tragedy earlier this year, when a van drove through a crowd at a busy intersection, killing 10 people and leaving 16 injured.

"We started to hear people scream out front", she said. "As we mourn, cherishing and caring for those in our lives may help with the pain", she said, overcome with emotion.

Chris Budo, who is running for city council in the area, said he knows two of the people who were shot.

Tory said the night reflected the city's ongoing "gun problem" and said firearms were "too readily available to too many people".

Investigators have not yet determined a motive in the shooting and are appealing to witnesses to come forward.

Toronto has deployed about 200 police officers since July 20 in response to the recent spate in shootings, which city officials have blamed on gang violence.

The scene of the attack is about 14.5km from Yonge Street, where a motorist went on a ramming rampage on April 23, which left 10 people dead and another 15 people injured.

At a news conference, Toronto police said the motive for the attack was unclear but the family's statement framed it as a mental health matter.
