Shooting at Toronto mall leaves 1 dead, 7 hurt
MONTREAL – A gunman opened fire Saturday in a busy food court at one of Canada’s best known shopping malls, Toronto’s Eaton’s Centre, killing a 25-year-old man and leaving seven others injured, police said.
“The nature of the wounds indicate this individual was targeted,” said Toronto police chief Bill Blair. “The others were innocent bystanders,” he said.
“This was outrageous,” Blair stressed. “A lot of innocent people were hurt and a lot of innocent people were put at risk.”
Hundreds of people were in the area at the time of the incident around 1820 local time (2220 GMT).
Police have a description of the suspect from eyewitnesses, Blair said, adding that the manhunt for the killer was on.
