Also, I do not know if this news qualifies as chit chat. Certainly I would be very happy if you added to the thread, at least.

Also, we have pictures from the scene from my friend and updates on deaths/critical condition there.

So we DO have more news there if you'd like to contribute to the news thread.

According to Const. Victor Kwong, the interior search of the mall has ended and the shooter is still at-large.


CP24 News




Const. Victor Kwong of the Toronto police said that one victim was pronounced dead at the downtown shopping mall. Two more are in critical condition and another has "life-threatening" injuries.

It is not yet clear whether all the injuries resulted from the gun shots.


CBC News

Note: the non-gun shot related wounds are estimated to be from the melee of those fleeing the scene. Please keep this life threatening situation in mind when faced with a critical situation like this, one and all. I didn't think that trampling like this still happened, but what a terrible reason to lose a life! I am so, so saddened right now.

I can't be with my friends to soothe them, who were witnesses to this (see picture in linked thread to get an idea of how close). I just moved away from the city recently and am both relieved and torn.

Ooops, sorry for that. I usually pick up the new threads. That being said, I don't see how this is BREAKING ALTERNATIVE NEWS - it is mainstream.... so I put in General chat. But hey, apparently you know better?? So where should I have put it!??

TortoiseKweek, I apologize for my brusque net tone tonight. I am personally agonizing over the event, and I regret shoving you or anyone else around.

I wish I could flag this thread 100 times, you know?

No prob man!

I think all of us here in Toronto area are a bit shaken and pissed off at this. So emotions are running high. I have to be honest, I'm not cool headed now, majorly pissed off at this!


This is my home, and when people do this crap, I get MAD! So please forgive me for my bad attitude tonight, but I AM MAD about this!

Preach!

25 year old man dead, 20 year olds male critical, 3 (2 male 1 female) in serious condition, 13 YEAR OLD in critical, woman shocked into labour as she is knocked down.

I now know what it is to be LIVID.

I know violence like this has always been happening in the world, but I can't help but ask: Why is this happening in our city? In Dundas Square???

Crowd submits pictures and videos, CBC News (also, injury and death toll updates). KILLER still at large

In a city where the cops lead the violent part of the demonstrations......this is not that shocking....i think the PTB will use it to go after even more gun laws.....
Its always the same thing, the people pay for the criminals actions....and we eat it up.......

I really don't know any city where being a law enforcer doesn't draw in a lot of the worst power tripping hidden tyrants in a society.

I love to sound an age old drum; we refuse to blanket an entire group with one statement regarding the violence of a certain, shameful number of them.

Those cops today saved lives.

Most people that go on a shooting/killing spree are nuttier than squirrel turds.
