No evidence Islamic State responsible for Toronto attack

"It's like two different people, it doesn't make sense", Sukhera told CBC News one day after the rampage that left two people dead - including a 10-year-old girl and 18-year-old woman - and injured 13 others.

The statement says the Sunday evening attack in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood had been carried out in response to Islamic State's call on its followers to target citizens of countries participating in a USA -led alliance fighting the radical militia.

Hussain lived with his parents in the building, and neighbors said the family was Pakistani.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said authorities are investigating "every possible motive, including terrorism", for the attack. Canadian investigators said there was no link to "national security" in a deadly shooting in a popular Toronto neighborhood.

The Greektown shooting comes about three months after the city was shaken by the deaths of 10 people, majority women, killed by a man with an apparent grudge against women who drove into them on a busy street in Toronto's north end.

The family disclosed that the 29-year-old had struggled with "severe mental health challenges" for years, adding that medication, therapy and other interventions were unsuccessful.

"Julianna was a handsome, aspiring athlete who was in her third year in our sport", said the statement, which urged people to join them in sending thoughts and prayers to her family. The community has to come to the realization that we are NOT the victims and that we have evil in our midst which we must weed out.

"On Monday we didn't reopen to mourn the lives lost", Kilanis said.

The gun used by Hussain has been traced to the United States and US authorities are helping narrow down its origin, according to CBC Wednesday. It is not known whether he was shot, he killed himself.

"It is now illegal", CBS reports, "to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon". Gun ownership also requires training, a personal risk assessment, two references, spousal notification and criminal record checks.

Among those in attendance at Wednesday evening's event were Toronto Mayor John Tory, Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti and Ontario Premier Doug Ford. It passed on a 41-4 vote.

"Uncle, believe me, I am fully dedicated to my father", he said, using the common honorific.

She said it's important that the community comes together because residents of Greek town need support and positivity.

"It still feels surreal", Sukhera said, "like it's a dream and I'm going to wake up and it didn't even happen".

Local politician Nathaniel Erskine-Smith confirmed the 18-year-old victim was Reese Fallon, a recent high school graduate who planned to study nursing.

Some hugged, some wept, and many said they wondered how the attacker obtained a gun in a country with far stricter gun laws than in the neighboring U.S. People signed a makeshift memorial reading: "We are Danforth strong". It's unclear if Hussain was killed by an officer or if he died due to self inflicted gun shot wounds.

"I'm out of my mind just thinking about it".
