Stars react to the Toronto Danforth shooting

Faisal Hussain

It's a frightening prospect: the Danforth shooting could have been much worse.

The Sunday evening shooting rampage in the Greektown district of Canada's largest city killed two people and left 13 others injured.

Two people were killed and 13 others injured in the shooting.

Sources also believe he had training because he was able to reload the gun while on the move. The Special Investigations Unit, an independent body looking into his demise, would not confirm a cause of death.

Hussain lived with his parents in an apartment and a police search of the premises turned up a firearm. But Toronto Sun columnist Anthony Furey found that the family's spokesman, Mohammed Hashim, is a "driving force" behind the Muslim Brotherhood-linked National Council of Canadian Muslims and has committed himself to "framing a new narrative of Muslims in Canada" and creating a "national political movement".

There's no evidence to support a claim from the Islamic State terror group that it was behind a deadly shooting spree in Toronto, the city's police chief said Wednesday as the federal government reiterated that there was no national security connection to the gunman.

"At this stage of the investigation, we do not know why this has happened yet", Mr Saunders said of the shooting. The name of the young girl, who was from the Greater Toronto area, has not been released per the wishes of her family.

Silva acknowledges going back-to-back will be tough due to the strength and improvement of the opposition. When asked if he was confident of a challenge, the 55-year-old replied: "I don't answer your question".

Danforth Avenue will be closed off completely between Carlaw and Broadview until at least noon on Monday, according to police, as TPS homicide detectives investigate the scene.

According to The Toronto Star, a former teacher at Victoria Park Collegiate recalled Hussain once saying that it would be "cool to kill someone".

Fahad Hussain was known to police for his involvement with street gangs, The Toronto Star newspaper reported. His neighbors and friends described him as quiet but mild-mannered and always polite. But as I also noted Monday, Hussain's family immediately put out a statement expressing sorrow for the victims and stating that their son had ongoing mental health problems. "What I see here is very touching". "His parents are lovely".

In July of 2017, court document show Fahad was in a coma in hospital due to an overdose and about six months later the Crown stayed the charges against him. Hussain's father, who suffers from an illness like Parkinson's, has been in particular decline since their daughter died around five years ago in an accident on the Don Valley Parkway.

"Our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life", the family statement said.

"Julianna was a attractive, aspiring athlete who was in her third year in our sport", said the statement, which urged people to join them in sending thoughts and prayers to her family. "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".

Sinha said current research suggests people with a "major mental illness" are 2.5 times more likely to be victims of violence than other members of society.
