10 dead, 15 injured after pedestrians run over in Toronto

A government spokeswoman says the man accused in a van attack that left 10 people dead in Toronto was briefly a member of the Canadian Armed Forces past year.

People leave flowers at a memorial on Yonge Street the day after a driver drove a rented van down sidewalks Monday afternoon, striking pedestrians in his path in Toronto, Tuesday, April 24, 2018. An additional attempted murder charge was expected to be laid soon, investigators said.

Toronto police said Tuesday that Minassian posted a cryptic message to Facebook just before he allegedly took off in his vehicle. Sgt.

He declined to comment when asked whether the suspect may have been frustrated over his relationships with women.

Through the years, D'Amico "went on to become an integral part of the volunteer team, most recently serving as committee head of Stadium Control", the sport governing body said.

In March 2016, a Canadian who claimed to have radical Islamist sympathies attacked two soldiers at a military recruitment center in Toronto.

Speaking to reporters early Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said there is no evidence to suggest the "horrific" and "senseless" attack has a national security element.

"Incel" refers to someone who is involuntarily celibate, or unable to find a sexual partner.

The Facebook post appears to have been made by Minassian's account, a Facebook spokesperson said. She was in critical condition with spinal damage, according to a Go Fund Me page created by Menab Tesfu, who identified himself as her nephew, and a Facebook post by Liah Tesfamariam, who identified herself as her niece. "Our hearts are will all of those affected".

And easy to realize that any of us could have been a victim that day. Rodger was the 22-year-old California man responsible for a deadly rampage in Isla Vista, Calif., that left six people dead and a dozen people wounded.

People who died when a van plowed down a Toronto sidewalk came from all walks of life, and from several countries.

In October, a man stabbed a police officer in the western city of Edmonton before slamming his van into a group of pedestrians, hurting four people.

Dr. Dirk Huyer, chief coroner for Ontario, said that authorities are still working on identifying the victims. The confirmations will be done through dental X-rays, fingerprinting or, if necessary, DNA analysis, he said.

David says being a police officer may be demanding, but it's also very rewarding. "It's far different from somebody found in their house deceased".

Anne Marie D'Amico, 30, was as stunning as she was accomplished and generous.

Elwood Delaney of Kamloops, B.C., described his grandmother as an avid sports fan who "almost had as much love for the Blue Jays and Leafs as she did for her family". She was separately identified as an employee of Invesco Ltd.

"We are honoured to let the world know what an fantastic person she was", Gavin Ziv, vice president of professional events at Tennis Canada, said in a statement.

He said his grandmother nearly had as much love for the Blue Jays baseball team and the Maple Leafs hockey team "as she did for her family". A Jordanian citizen and two South Koreans were also among those killed.

A new statement from Intraligi says "I can now confirm that unfortunately one of our employees has succumbed to her injuries".

Police have arrested the driver and said the act was deliberate, but the motive remains unclear.
