ISIS Claims Deadly Toronto Attack, Stating It Was A “Call To Target Citizens” [Video]
The attack took place around 10 pm Sunday night when the alleged gunman took aim at a crowded restaurant in Tronto using a handgun. The suspect was later found dead in an ally presumably from returned police fire.
ISIS has taken responsibility for the shooting but both the suspect’s family and officials say that isn’t likely. The alleged gunman reportedly suffered from mental issues. The horrific incident has left Candian’s already strict gun laws under fire.
According to ABC News, Toronto police said Wednesday there’s “no evidence to support” ISIS’s claim of responsibility for this weekend’s deadly attack in the Canadian city.
As Reported By The Guardian:
Three people – including the suspected gunman – have died and 13 others have been injured after a lone gunman opened fire along a lively avenue in the Canadian city of Toronto, seemingly shooting at random at pedestrians and into crowded restaurants.
Authorities identified the suspect as Faisal Hussain, 29, of Toronto, who died after an exchange of gunfire with police. It was not immediately clear whether he killed himself or was killed by police.
Police said an 18-year-old woman and a 10-year-old girl, both of them from the Toronto area, was killed in the attack. The 18-year-old was later identified as Reese Fallon. She had graduated high school last month and “was highly regarded by staff and loved by her friends”, Toronto’s mayor, John Tory, said in a statement.
Another 13 people, ranging in age 10 to 59 years, remain in hospital, with injuries ranging from minor to serious. Of the 15 victims in the attack, eight were women and girls.
