No evidence Islamic State responsible for Toronto attack

Канадська розвідка встановила особу

The Sunday evening shooting rampage in the Greektown district of Canada's largest city killed two people and left 13 others injured.

Toronto police identified the two victims of the shooting as 10-year-old Julianna Kozis and 18-year-old Reese Fallon, a recent high school graduate who volunteered for Canada's Liberal Party and who was to attend McMaster University in the fall. Thirteen other people suffered gunshot wounds that night.

The psychiatric association says it condemns Hussain's actions, but believes discussing them in the context of his depression risks stigmatizing people with psychiatric disorders.

Torontonians turned out in great numbers to a vigil for the victims of the deadly Danforth shooting one day after the rampage.

Joe Warmington of The Toronto Sun reported that Hussain apparently had been spoken to by authorities about his online activities.

Yet if the truth is out there, and it may not be, it probably lies as it often does in the murky middle.

Saudi Arabia Halts Oil Shipments as Yemeni Rebels Attack Tankers
Saudi Arabia accuses regional arch-foe Iran of supplying missiles to the Houthis, something Tehran and the Houthis deny. It has said it foiled previous attacks there in April and May.

If mental illness is the main claim here, then did Hussain's doctor ever warn the family about his potential for violence?

Amarasingam said he was "very skeptical" about the latest IS claim.

The third party, who had distributed the family's statement, didn't reply to a Post email Tuesday, asking if he had any light to shed on the apparent contradiction between the statement and police files.

The suspected shooter, 29-year-old Faisal Hussain, is a Toronto resident.

It is now illegal to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon in Canada.

Federal officials said on Tuesday that there was no terror link to Sunday's attack in which the lone gunman opened fire along a bustling avenue in the city, seemingly shooting at random at pedestrians and into shops and restaurants. Even though there seems to be a full court press from some to deny links to possible terrorism or Jihad, sources say, law enforcement agencies are still working up a full profile of whatever they do find.

Trump could simply put someone else in his place who was more inclined to blunt or hamper the investigation. Rosenstien, redacted FBI Agent Peter Strzok's personal relationship with FISC Judge Rudolph Contreras.

Meanwhile, as part of the investigation police are also looking into any possible connection to Hussain's brother, who is now in a coma, and a 2017 seizure of more than 30 guns in Pickering, Ont.

A former head of special education also told The Star that Hussain often spoke about hearing voices in his head and that police were once called when he began cutting his face with the blade from a pencil sharpener. Does he probably know Muslim extremists? Yeah. Is he mentally ill? Yeah, probably. Does he have access to guns from the guys in his neighbourhood?

"He was yelling f*** you all, you're all going to die". "We wanted to do that to show our support to the community".

Shortly after gunman Faisal Hussain terrorized the city, Arcade Fire finished up a set at the Budweiser Stage by the waterfront and learned what had happened. And that, for all the shades of grey that constitute the human animal, is now the ghastly central fact of his life.

He was just like most everyone else, in other words complicated.

And one night, he fired upon children and teenagers and people having coffee.
