Toronto shooter and family are from Jhelum in Pakistan

No motive yet for Toronto shooting

Toronto police say they have "no evidence" that the gunman behind Sunday's deadly shooting rampage in Toronto was connected to the Islamic State extremist militia after the group claimed responsibility for the attack on Wednesday.

On Sunday 22 July, 2018, on a peaceful evening on busy Danforth Avenue in Toronto, girls aged 10 and 18 were shot and killed in an attack that terrorized this handsome Greek town neighborhood while 13 others were injured, some critically.

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.

"At this stage, we have no evidence to support these claims", he said.

The Toronto Police source also said that "there's nothing like that at our end", unless the Canadian Security Intelligence Service or the RCMP have information to the contrary, which Goodale's statement strongly suggests they do not.

Hussain's family said he worked in a grocery store but spent much of his time at home, and the struggled with severe mental illness. They said medications and therapy had been unable to treat him.

Arsenal missed out on a Champions League spot for the second successive season to force the Gunners board to make a change. Ramsey moved to Arsenal from Championship side Cardiff City in the 2008 summer transfer window.

Reacting to the "terrible tragedy" in the early hours of Monday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted: "The people of Toronto are strong, resilient and fearless - and we'll be there to support you through this hard time". "We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives".

The motive behind the shooting, rare in Toronto, was also not immediately known.

According to a post-shooting story by CBS News, Canada tightened its gun laws after a 1989 mass shooting at a college campus that left 14 dead.

After the rampage, Toronto Mayor John Tory said the city has "a gun problem in that guns are readily available to too many people". It passed on a 41-4 vote.

"Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?" he asked in an address to city councillors early on Monday.

The shooter had a lifelong mental illness, his family said, and city leaders want to ban handguns.

India offers 200 million dollar loan to Uganda
Indian Vice President Hamid Ansari had visited Uganda in February a year ago . "A historic visit starts with a special gesture". There more than 30,000 Indians living in Uganda and some of them have been pushing to be recognised as one of the tribes here.

Eighteen-year-old Reese Fallon had just graduated high school and was looking forward to studying nursing.

Sukhera, who said he felt Hussain trusted him, came to know the 29-year-old through a Toastmasters public speaking course that Sukhera ran.

15 people were shot on Danforth Avenue when a gunman opened fire along the busy street Sunday night. "I understand the argument of hunters and fishers, but no one is using handguns to cull the raccoon population in Toronto", he said.

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". A source close to the family told CTV News he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but The Special Investigations Unit has not confirmed if he was shot by police or if his injuries were self-inflicted.

I was just reminded that there is goodness in the world.
