A second person has died as a result of a shooting in Toronto. Toronto police are seeking video and photos from people and businesses in the area where a gunman killed a woman and shot 13 other people in the Greektown neighborhood.
A video from one witness shows a man dressed in black firing three shots from the sidewalk into at least one shop or restaurant late Sunday. Witnesses said they heard 20 to 30 shots.
Police Chief Mark Saunders said terrorism had not been ruled out. Toronto police tweeted the shooting occurred in the Danforth and Logan avenues area of the Greektown neighborhood, a busy residential area with restaurants and cafes.
Two people were killed and a young girl was critically wounded. Saunders said the gunman died after exchanging gunfire with police.
Police say a gunman and one victim is dead after a man shot 14 people, including a young girl, in the Toronto neighborhood known as Greektown.
Toronto police chief Mark Saunders says a young woman was killed in the shooting Sunday night. He also says a young girl is in critical condition.
Police spokesman Mark Pugash says the condition of the other victims is not known yet. He says it’s too early to say whether the shooting is terrorism.
Following the shooting, police, paramedics and other first responders descended on the scene, while area residents, some in their pajamas, emerged from their homes to see what was happening.
