No evidence Islamic State responsible for Toronto attack

No evidence Islamic State responsible for Toronto attack

Police previously identified the other person killed in the shooting as 18-year-old Reese Fallon of Toronto. Family members of Faisal said that he had mental health issues for a long time after he faced a lot of distress in life with failures and problems, but they were anxious that their son had to face such a terrible ending in his life.

The weekend attack, which took place in Toronto's Greektown neighbourhood at around 10:00 pm Sunday, rocked a city that has long prided itself as being safe.

"At this time, there is no national-security nexus to the investigation", said a spokesperson for the ministry of public safety.

Residents of the apartment complex on Thorncliffe Dr. where 29-year-old Faisal Hussain lived with his parents expressed shock that someone among them could have carried out the Sunday night rampage that killed a 10-year-old girl and 18-year-old aspiring nurse.

"While we did our best to seek help for him throughout his life of struggle and pain, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end", the family said.

Reacting to the "terrible tragedy" in the early hours of Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted: "The people of Toronto are strong, resilient and courageous - and we'll be there to support you through this hard time".

Mourners could be seen carrying signs that read #DanforthStrong and other messages of resilience, showing the world that this vicious attack on The Danforth won't define who we are as a city. The report also did not say what happened after police apprehended Hussain.

It was not immediately known where Hussain obtained his firearm.

According to a post-shooting story by CBS News, Canada tightened its gun laws after a 1989 mass shooting at a college campus that left 14 dead.

Rather, the source said, Hussain remained on the periphery of gang life - well-connected enough to get his hands on an illegal handgun (the weapon he used was illegal and he had no Possession and Acquisition Licence), but either he was not in sufficiently deep that he acquired a serious record or he was lucky enough to avoid it.

Among those in attendance at Wednesday evening's event were Toronto Mayor John Tory, Premier Doug Ford, Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Cabinet Ministers and MPPs. It passed on a 41-4 vote.

"It was always very dark and hard for me to understand", she said.

Adam Vaughan, a member of the federal Liberal government, suggested that handguns be banned outright in large urban centers.

"I felt like an older brother, but I guess I wasn't", Sukhera said.

But Vaughan said the rules should be different for people living in rural areas.

Just two days before the shooting, Toronto had deployed 200 more officers on the streets of at-risk neighborhoods between 7 p.m. and 3 an effort to reduce gun violence.

So far this year 26 people have died from gun violence, a 59% increase from the same period last year.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders confirmed early Monday that one of the victims was a "young woman". "It's going to take some time".

But the restrictive gun laws didn't stop Faisal Hussain, who went on rampage that killed two people, and injured 14 more, before he was killed. The wounded ranged in age from 17 to 59.

Anthony Parise, who taught Fallon's Grade 12 English class, remembered her as "a leader among her peers" who planned to become a nurse.

"She was so excited to be accepted into the McMaster program for nursing".

"And then a lady tried to run and she fell down", he said.

Thirteen others were injured in the mass shooting that started outside a restaurant at Danforth and Logan avenues in the heart of Greektown.
