Gun used in Toronto shooting likely came from U.S.

Cole BURSTON Toronto shooter’s neighbors knew nothing of mental illness

The claim appears on one of the group's social media channels, and a security member of ISIS was quoted speaking to the group's Amaq news agency. Neighbours say they visit him in hospital every afternoon.

"At this stage of the investigation, we do not know why this has happened yet", Mr Saunders said of the shooting.

Tuesday, the family released a photo of Hussain, dressed in a shirt and tie with a sweater overtop and polished dress shoes.

Prior to Sunday's attack, the Canadian government was already considering changes to the nation's gun laws, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said.

Later, Hussain died after a brief exchange of gunfire with the police on Danforth Avenue.

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

The older victim has been identified as Toronto resident Reese Fallon, who was to begin studies at McMaster University in the city of Hamilton this September.

Omarosa, former Trump aide, has "explosive" book coming
Omarosa is about to release her own fire and fury on the Trump administration. "I'm thinking of writing a tell-all sometime". Omarosa's loyalty to the Trump brand was fierce until her drama-filled White House departure in December.

Meanwhile, in the wake of the shooting, a vigil will be held on Danforth on Wednesday night.

The city of Markham paid tribute to Julianna by lowering flags and opening a book of condolence.

Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti said the city would lower its flags to honour the girl and that the community north of Toronto had been shaken and hurt by this "senseless act of violence".

It's tragic enough that an innocent 10- year-old child and an eighteen-year old in the prime of her youth, full of aspirations and hope for the future, lost their lives in this incident.

Toronto Police said they had responded to a call at around 10:00 pm (0200 GMT Monday) in the city's Greektown district, at the intersection of the Danforth and Logan avenues areas.

On Wednesday evening, the CN Tower was to be lit blue and white in support of the Greektown neighbourhood. Parents pushed children in strollers, others brought their dogs.

In one video, the gunman can actually be seen firing into what looks like a restaurant from the sidewalk.

"Demi Lovato Could Have Died Due To Drug Overdose", Sources
She was unconscious when she was discovered at around 11.30 a.m. on July 24 and the 911 call was placed. "I was, I'm downstairs". An " Entertainment Tonight " source says the 25-year-old singer has been telling her family she can get sober on her own.

Mary Marzo wrote a plea for "love and peace" in chalk at the memorial, saying the city and neighbourhood could use more of both at the moment. A teen from the neighborhood played guitar, another sang.

Officials did not identify the other fatality, a 10-year-old girl, or name any of the 13 wounded, who included six women and girls, and seven men.

"I'm out of my mind just thinking about it".

A classmate, who does not wish to be named, says she remembers Hussain carrying around a notebook that he would sketch in during class. "I need help. I need services and support.' As soon as they get those supports, recovery is possible". He was buried by his family on Wednesday.

"And I was stunned", the teacher said. But the motive may be elusive, as Hussain was also killed.

Aamir Sukhera was a close friend of Faisal Hussain and says he knew he had mental illness, but he thought he was doing fine.

With a friend pulling him away and no time to think, Demircan says he ran away. "I'm not sure what else can be done".
