A shooting that erupted in the middle of a Toronto street Sunday night left two people dead and 12 others injured, authorities said.

The shooter, a 29-year-old man, is also dead, according to Ontario's Special Investigations Unit.

An innocent bystander, a "young lady," died in the exchange of gunfire, Toronto police said, adding that another girl, 8 or 9 years old, was in critical condition.

The other 11 people were being treated at a hospital after all the victims were struck by gunfire.

The shooting took place near Danforth Street and Logan Avenue, which is in the city's Greektown neighborhood, often referred to as The Danforth.

Police responded quickly and engaged in a shootout with the suspect, who used a handgun, authorities said of the incident that began at about 10 p.m.

"I’m not calling it random," Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters overnight. "I don't know why he did what he did. He won’t be able to tell us because he is deceased."

It's unclear how many shots were fired but a person in the neighborhood posted a video on Twitter in which at least five shots can be heard. The user tweeted, "So scary!! The gun violence in Toronto is crazy."

Toronto police have no motive for the shooting, and asked any eyewitnesses to come forward or anyone with video to provide it to authorities.

When asked about the suspect, Saunders said police knew "nothing at this point in time."

 Saunders could not confirm whether the shooting was an incident of terrorism but police were investigating all possibilities, he added.

"I'm keeping everything open. I'm looking at every possible motive," he said. "I certainly don't want to speculate, too."

"My thoughts are with everyone affected by the terrible tragedy on the Danforth last night in Toronto, and may the injured make a full recovery," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted Monday morning. "The people of Toronto are strong, resilient and brave - and we’ll be there to support you through this difficult time."

Toronto Mayor John Tory, speaking at the overnight news conference, acknowledged the Canadian city’s problems with gun violence.

"We still live in a great city,” he said, “but we have to be ever more vigilant about these kind of things.”

So Canada has a gun violence problem too. So sorry for these folks that were injured and killed.  Sorry for their families too.

If the Toronto shooter was mentally ill, he wouldn’t have been able to fire a gun 20 times while walking & hit 14 ppl while on the move. He was a trained assassin. He was a trained Jihadi who traveled to Afghanistan & Pakistan. Canadian authorities knew who he was. (AGAIN - AUTHORITIES KNEW!!) Terrorism.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.....except for the election of Donald Trump.

I knew there had to be a reason the Muslim apologists weren't touching this.

I wonder how Canadians are feeling about their smug "tolerence" now?  People here who are leary of accepting too many "refugees" from muslim hotbeds are considered bigots and racists and nazis by the liberal progressive northern neighbors------ perhaps they are going to get an education.
