 July 23, 2018: A gunman opened fire in central Toronto on Sunday night, injuring nine people including a child before being shot dead, police reported.


Toronto Police said they had responded to a call at around 10:00 pm (0200 GMT Monday) in the city’s Greektown district.

“Conditions of victims not known yet. A young girl is one of the 9 victims,” the police department tweeted.

The police said the nine victims did “not include the shooter who is dead.”

Global News quoted a Toronto police source as saying the suspect is believed to have opened fire at police before killing himself. Witnesses described to local media hearing about 20 shots and the sound of a weapon being reloaded several times.

John Tulloch said he and his brother had just gotten out of their car on Danforth when he heard about 20 to 30 gunshots. “We just ran. We saw people starting to run so we just ran,” he said.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford tweeted out a message of solidary with the victims, saying: “My heart goes out to the victims and loved ones of the horrific act of gun violence in Toronto.

An army of police, paramedics and other first responders descended on the scene after the shooting, while area residents, some in their pyjamas, emerged from their homes to see what was happening.

The incident comes with Canada’s largest metropolis concerned over a spate of shootings, more than 200, this year. About two dozen have been fatal.
