Toronto Shooting: Two victims and shooter dead, several injured

Witnesses said they heard 20 to 30 shots.

Ontario's police watchdog says a second person is dead after gunman shot 14 people in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood.

Saunders also said a nine-year-old girl was in critical condition and fighting for her life in hospital.

Police spokesman Mark Pugash said it is too early to comment on the motives behind the attack, and whether the shooting was related to terrorism.

One of the 14 victims, a woman, has since died. The shooter is also dead. "The man fled the area and was located, deceased, on Danforth Avenue". Saunders said the gunman died after exchanging gunfire with police.

Police, paramedics and firefighters responded to the scene.

John Tulloch told CBC that the gun-shots originally were fireworks because they were rapid fire. "I know answering questions like this won't fully eliminate tragedies like this, but even if we can prevent one of these incidents, then in my view it is a discussion worth having and having very soon". The gunman is seen walking down the street with a gun in his hand before he began firing shots.

Someone living in the area actually caught a video in which the gunshots can be heard ringing out. It wasn't initially clear, though, if he was shot by police.

My evening was nice until I heard shooting right out of my place on the danforth.

The murder rate jumped by 7 per cent, due largely to killings in British Columbia and Quebec, while crime involving guns grew by 7 per cent. "Every little bit of information is going to help the police to do their job". "And that leads to another question we need to discuss: Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?"

A reporter from news service Global News Toronto tweeted "victims are spread across many blocks".

Toronto Mayor John Tory called the shooting "a despicable act" and expressed outrage that someone had "unleashed such a awful attack on our city and people innocently enjoying a Sunday evening".

The area along The Danforth remains closed and the TTC is bypassing Chester Station as the police investigation continues.
