Safe Mode: On
2 Dead, 19 Wounded (including infant), in mass shooting Toronto (fobfob77 - I PUT MY LIVELEAK ACCOUNT ON THE LINE!) 

TORONTO - A reckless exchange of bullets at a crowded
outdoor party in Toronto killed two young people late Monday night in
what the city's police chief described as an unprecedented episode of
gun violence.
At least 19 others, including an infant, were injured after bullets
from more than one gun were sprayed into the crowd of more than 200
people at a outdoor barbecue in the city's east end.
"This is the worst incident of gun violence, in my memory, anywhere
in North America," Police Chief Bill Blair said from the scene of the
crime in a residential neighbourhood.
"It is the most serious crime of its kind that has ever taken place in the city of Toronto."

Police made multiple appeals for witnesses to contact them as they
began to pull together descriptions for what appeared to be multiple
shooters.
They said they had one "person of interest" in custody and were looking for other suspects.

The incident took place before 11 p.m. on Danzig St., near Morningside Ave., and Lawrence Ave. East.

"An altercation broke out among some individuals and there was an
exchange of gunfire. During that gunfire a number of innocent bystanders
were struck," said Blair.
"It's a very shocking event, a lot of people were injured tonight."

The two killed in the shooting were a teenage girl and a man in his 20s, officials said.

Blair did not provide the age of the child who was injured but says
the injuries are "not life-threatening and the child will be fine."
Those hurt in the incident suffered a mix of gunshot wounds and injuries from the mass panic that ensued.

A variety of Toronto police divisions were called in to assist with
the investigation, including the Guns and Gangs unit and the homicide
squad.

IT'S NOT THE GUNS THAT KILL PEOPLE - IT'S THE HUMANS WHO FIRE THOSE GUNS WHO DO! Knives can kill also...it's THE HUMANS! Stop blaming the weapon! Time to focus on the people, not the weapon.
I'd like to know what ethnicity fired the guns in this incident! We have 3rd world people by the thousands now, living here in 1st world countries, so we will now experience the violence that 3rd world countries do. Why? Thanks to those who've come here from 3rd world countries! It was such a great humanitarian project on paper 30 years ago, and now you have your results.

There is NO information on who the possible offenders are at this time, yet I'm telling you right now, they will be of a so called "minority race" GUARANTEED! Lets wait and see shall we? Why do I already know I have a 100% chance of being right?

I've just had it with these so called "minorities" and their violent ways! Prove me wrong! If this crime was not committed by a so called "minority", then I will not only acknowledge being wrong, but I will DELETE my LiveLeak Account forever!! That's a PROMISE! Right from FOBFOB77!!! THIS SHOOTING WAS FROM A MINORITY RACE OR I WILL DELETE MY LIVELEAK ACCOUNT FOREVER, AND NEVER RETURN TO THIS SITE EVER! How committed is that? Huh? Now lets see shall we? I would bet this is the FIRST TIME EVER that a top Liveleaker has put their account on the line like this. Well FOBFOB77 has! So let's see the facts!

      I'm not confirming or denying it but the area that this happened in happens to have a lot of black people residing in it. Most of the violence that takes place here are committed by blacks but not all.

      I read somewhere that there were like over 140 shootings so far in Toronto and you can bet your ass that almost all of them were committed by blacks.

      Also even in that area which has a higher population of blacks, there are also plenty of non-blacks living right next to these ghetto fools and guess what? None of those non-black kids are growing up to be violent criminals like black kids are.

  • The problem in Canada is only criminals use guns. The law abiding citizen is not allowed by law to defend their property or them selves with a gun. A slight contradition in the law states that you are allowed to meet force with equal force but no greater to (legally ) defend yourself. So if the bad guy has an illegal gun you are screwed.

      Sorry but I disagree. In Toronto even in the years with the highest murder totals here, Toronto was still the safest city in North America for its size BY FAR.

      Even with this and the Eaton Center being high profile incidents involving multiple deaths and many injured, Toronto's murder total is STILL about the same as it was last year.

      The point is that while in the US, giving guns to everyone to defend themselves makes sense, in Toronto and rest of Canada it DOES NOT make sense to do t More..

    • @John_Matrix Problem is, the law abiding citizen who takes care to follow the law is the one being punished. Taking our guns away because some assholes who got illegal guns and don't know how to use them properly goes out and shoots someone is retarded. Let those who want a gun and want to use it responsibly have a gun... those that have guns for crimes will think secondly about pulling it on someone.

    • @K9COP i agree to you to some degree, but the fact remains those who defend guns with things like "guns dont kill people, people do" that still does not make it ok to give a gun to anyone and everyone, it needs to be more regulated, people need to know how, when, why, to use them and such.
      the police need to stop targeting people with guns and instead focus more on those people who are putting the guns on the street and giving guns to little more than "animals"

    • @Aariss Nobodies guns have been taken away. In fact, the ending of the long gun registry has made Canada even more gun friendly. As for the shooting range at Union Station, it's city property. They can do what they want. There are plenty of private ranges on private property around the GTA. You're trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill.

    That's not entirely true. I live in this city and we have gun violence and whether it's more or less than in US cities, doesn't really matter. The point is that we have it and it's perpetuate by lowlife criminals who have obtained illegal guns and often use them against innocent people. The violence seems to be increasing at a steady rate--perhaps up to 1-2 cases per week. The cops aren't doing enoug More..

      It's almost like criminals don't use legally purchased firearms and gun restriction doesn't help to combat gun crimes. :D

      If I didn't know better, I'd think that was the case.

      But the government knows best. Gun restrictions must stop these sort of incidents, otherwise the government wouldn't waste hundreds of millions of dollars enforcing them.
