TERROR IN TORONTO? Gunman Expressed 'SUPPORT' for ISIS Website Ahead of Attack
27 July, 2018, 21:46
Nearly three days after two people were shot and killed in Toronto, and after local authorities said their killings had nothing to do with terrorism, ISIS has claimed credit for the attack.
A statement issued by the jihadist group's Amaq propaganda agency said that the shooter, whom police identified on Monday as 29-year-old Toronto-native Faisal Hussain, was a "soldier of the Islamic State and carried out attack in response to the calls to target citizens of coalition countries".
Sairah Ahmed said that while Hussain did not mingle with fellow residents as his parents frequently did, he was a familiar sight around the neighbourhood.
So far this year there have been 229 "shooting occurrences" in Toronto, according to statistics provided by police.
The Greektown shooting comes about three months after the city was shaken by the deaths of 10 people, majority women, killed by a man with an apparent grudge against women who drove into them on a busy street in Toronto's north end.
"We will continue to explore every investigative avenue, including interviewing those who knew Mr Hussain, reviewing his online activity, and looking into his experiences with mental health", police spokeswoman Meaghan Gray said.
Many said they came to the area on a stretch of Danforth Avenue to reflect on the tragedy and to show their support for the neighbourhood known for its restaurants, boutiques and family homes. "We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives", a statement from the Hussain family, quoted by Global News, read.
Gun violence is nearly unheard of in the area and in Toronto, and the realization that a neighbor had gotten a handgun was deeply unsettling to many of Hussain's neighbors.
"It is now illegal", CBSreports, "to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon". Gun ownership also requires training, a personal risk assessment, two references, spousal notification and criminal record checks. Mayor John Tory has also questioned why anybody would need a gun in Toronto and said he supported a motion urging the federal government to ban the sale of handguns in Toronto. It passed on a 41-4 vote.
"He's not a normal person", said the neighbour, who asked not to be identified.
Since the shooting, Demircan said he attended the vigil at the scene on Wednesday night, and plans to do more.
A local politician, Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, confirmed the 18-year-old victim was Reese Fallon, a recent high school graduate who planned to study nursing.
Hussain died from a gunshot wound, but it's not yet clear if it was self-inflicted or the result of an exchange of gunfire with police.
With a friend pulling him away and no time to think, Demircan says he ran away. "Given the extraordinary circumstances of this tragic incident and the public interest, the Service reveals the name of her husband is Faisal Hussein from Toronto", - said in a Special intelligence.
