‘No evidence to support’ ISIS claim of responsibility for Toronto attack

Two dead, 13 injured in Toronto shooting | GuelphMercury.com

Ten-year-old Julianna Kozis was out on Danforth Avenue with her family on Sunday night when she was caught in the hail of bullets fired by 29-year-old Faisal Hussain.

Hussain's parents have said their son struggled with psychosis and depression and that they were devastated by his violent actions.

"The interventions of professionals were unsuccessful".

Treatment, including counseling and medication, had not helped, the family said, but they had no indication that Hussain posed a danger to others.

"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", the family said.

She and aspiring nurse Resse Fallon, 18, were the two victims killed in the shooting.

Eighteen-year-old Reese Fallon had just graduated high school and was looking forward to studying nursing. The university issued a statement confirming a new enrolled student died in the attack and extending condolences on her death.

"She was a very pretty girl, young - she looked very happy".

"Reese gave the warmest of hugs. You saw the pride that she obviously had with the medal she won", he said. "Everyone. wanted to be around her".

A spokesperson said her loss has been a "traumatic event" for many at the club.

In recent years, they say, investigators have noticed a stark shift in where guns used to commit crimes are coming from.

Toronto city Coun. Jim Karygiannis told The Canadian Press that he knows the girl's family and that her death is a "devastation" to the community. On Monday, the area was largely deserted as police combed through the neighbourhood.

Waterloo fire passed along their "deepest prayers" to the victims.

They will be joined by Mayor John Tory at a local church before they walk along Danforth Avenue bearing lanterns and candles.

"My personal perspective. I don't own a gun and I can't see why anyone else would", said Vaughan, parliamentary secretary responsible for housing and urban affairs. "I think that's something that people on the left and people on the right agree upon".

ISIS claimed responsibility but Toronto police said there's "no evidence to support" the terrorist group's claim.

"I said that we would be prepared to consider their arguments, and we will do that", he said. "It's going to take some time".

The federal public safety minister's office said that the police will continue to lead the investigation into Hussain's background.

Hussain, 29, was found dead a short distance away after a shootout with police.

"It was very quick - boom boom boom boom - and then we realized it was gunshots". "The people who are shooting up our streets are not the people who will be obeying any gun bans". Servers and fellow patrons provided first aid and held her hand until paramedics arrived, he said. "I can't believe it's him".

"We'll examine the proposal to see if it can be effective".

Witnesses reported hearing the sound of a weapon being reloaded several times and said the shooting rampage lasted just a few minutes sparking panic in the district, popular for its bars and restaurants.

"They go get their license for the objective of becoming a firearms trafficker", he said. "He was shooting while he was running".

In widely circulated video, the gunman, clad in black, is seen walking down the street before turning, lifting a handgun, and firing.
