Police say no conclusion reached on link between Toronto shooter, ISIS

A Pakistani-origin man has been identified by the Canadian police as the gunman who killed two persons and injured 13 others in a deadly mass shooting in the country's largest city Toronto.

Police are looking into Hussain's background and, sources say, was recently kicked out of a Thorncliffe jobs program for unknown reasons.

But Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said Wednesday in a statement "At this stage, we have no evidence to support these claims". 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".

The Toronto Police source also said that "there's nothing like that at our end", unless the Canadian Security Intelligence Service or the RCMP have information to the contrary, which Goodale's statement strongly suggests they do not.

Just days after the Greektown shooting that took the lives of two people and injured 13 others, hundreds in the community gathered to honour all of the victims affected by the tragedy.

The family disclosed that the 29-year-old had struggled with "severe mental health challenges" for years, adding that medication, therapy and other interventions were unsuccessful.

"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. "We stand by the victims, the fearless first responders and all the communities affected by this tragedy". "We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives", Hussain's family said in a statement.

The Thorncliffe area where Hussain lived is notorious for gang activity and a source told CBC News that Hussain might have gotten the gun through an older brother who allegedly has ties to a gang.

It is now illegal to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon in Canada. "Canada also requires training, a personal risk assessment, two references, spousal notification and criminal record checks".

Councillors approved a motion to urge the federal government to forbid the sale of handguns in the city and for the province to outlaw the sale of handgun ammunition in Toronto.

Among those in attendance at Wednesday evening's event were Toronto Mayor John Tory, Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti and Ontario Premier Doug Ford. It passed on a 41-4 vote.

"Uncle, believe me, I am fully dedicated to my father", he said, using the common honorific.

The Shootout happened in the city of Toronto shocked the nation after an unknown man started firing at pedestrians on Sunday night in Danforth Avenue.

He said, "I think he wanted to impress those guys".

On Monday, 10-year-old Julianna Kozis was identified as the second victim of the shooting.

"A lady tried to run and she fell down", he said. It's unclear if Hussain was killed by an officer or if he died due to self inflicted gun shot wounds.
