TORONTO: Toronto police on Monday identified the 29-year-old man who shot dead two people and wounded 13 overnight on a busy street in Canada’s largest city.
Police said the gunman was Faisal Hussain of Toronto. Hussain was found dead after an exchange of gunfire with police.
Police said they were releasing his identity “due to the exceptional circumstances of this tragic incident and the public interest in knowing the man’s identity.”
Toronto’s police chief said earlier on Monday that the authorities have not yet determined a motive for the attack.
Fourteen people, including a young girl, were shot near downtown Toronto, police reported on Sunday, with one person killed and the gunman also dead.
The young girl was in a critical condition, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said.
“We are looking at all possible motives… and not closing any doors,” Saunders told reporters at the site of the shooting.
