Shots fired at Canada mall, 1 dead
TORONTO (AP) ó A gunman fired shots in a crowded food court in one of Canada's busiest malls Saturday killing a man and injuring seven others, police said.
Police Chief Bill Blair called it a targeted shooting against one individual and said there were a number of innocent bystanders. Police constable Victor Kwong said two people were in critical condition after being shot at the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto, including a 13-year old boy. The 25-year-old man who was killed died at the scene, he said.
Kwong said six people were shot in all, including the deceased.
Two people were trampled on and pushed, including a pregnant woman who went into labor after she was pushed, Kwong said. Blair said investigators have a description of the suspect.
"A lot of innocent people were hurt and a lot of innocent people were put at risk," Blair said. "We will be relentless in our pursuit of the individual or individuals that were responsible. We are receiving a lot of cooperation from the people that were present in the foot court."
Blair called the Eaton Centre an iconic landmark in Toronto, Canada's largest city.
"Any place for discharging a firearm in Toronto is dangerous, in the food court of the Eaton Centre on a Saturday evening, it's not only dangerous, it's outrageous," he said. "I believe every Torontonian is shocked and appalled by this crime."
Witnesses said multiple shots were fired in the mall's food court and that hundreds of panicked shoppers sprinted for the exits. The mall, which is popular with tourists, was evacuated.
Swarms of people watched from outside as an injured man with visible bullet wounds was wheeled out on a stretcher.
