Toronto Mass Shooting: 1 killed, 14 injured, count may increase, said police
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. 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. Canada traditionally has relatively low levels of gun violence, particularly compared with its neighbour the United States.
