Gunman Shoots 14, Kills 1 in Toronto Rampage Gunman Shoots 14, Kills 1 in Toronto Rampage

A gunman shot and killed a woman and wounded 13 people in a rampage in a lively neighborhood in Toronto late Sunday, before he died following a fire fight with police. A 9-year-old girl who was among the wounded is in critical condition, police said. Police Chief Mark Saunders said the shooting, in the Greektown neighborhood, was not random and that he did not rule out terrorism as a motive. He said the suspect used a handgun, reported USA Today. Saunders said officers exchanged gunfire but it was not clear how the man died, and that no police officers were injured, Canadian broadcaster CBC reported. A video from one witness shows a man dressed in black walking quickly and firing three shots from the sidewalk into at least one shop or restaurant.  John Tulloch said he and his brother had just gotten out of their car when he heard about 20 to 30 gunshots. “We just ran. We saw people starting to run so we just ran,” he said. Mass shootings are rare in Canada’s largest city.
