Toronto Shooting: Is Terrorism Suspected in Greektown?
The Toronto mass shooting in Greektown has left two people dead and 13 more wounded, after a 29-year-old man clad in black started randomly shooting people with a handgun. The circumstances have a lot of people wondering: Is it terrorism and a terror attack? Could ISIS or some other terror group be involved?
The answer, as of July 23, 2018: Police Chief Mark Saunders was asked directly about the terrorism question in his first news briefing, and he said it's not clear yet whether the mass shooting is terrorism or not. Essentially, police haven't ruled it out, though. Police have provided no further update on that front. Toronto police wrote: "14 victims were shot with a handgun. 1 female adult has died. 1 young girl in critical condition. Suspect is dead (not included in 14 victim total)." They later said a second person had died.
The shooter has now been identified as Faisal Hussain.
