His family, in a statement given to reporters Monday evening, said Hussain suffered from "severe" mental illness, "struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life".

Many said they came to the area on a stretch of Danforth Avenue to reflect on the tragedy and to show their support for the neighbourhood known for its restaurants, boutiques and family homes.

The first victim to be identified was Reese Fallon, 18.

Two are confirmed dead and 13 are injured in Toronto's mass shooting.

Mr Erskine Smith told media that the family was "devastated" and was asking for privacy at this time. People who knew Fallon described her as "very smart" and with "full of energy", the report added.

"It is a huge loss". The number of shootings has risen 13 per cent. "An engaging student, Reese Fallon graduated from Malvern CI just last month and was highly regarded by staff and loved by her friends", he said.

Tattoo shop owner Tanya Wilson said a mother and son ran into her store bleeding from leg wounds. Praying that some of these reported injuries from the shooting don't turn into fatalities.

"They say one of our soldiers but what does that even mean", former Ontario Provincial Police commissioner Chris Lewis told CP24 on Wednesday morning.

During a debate in City Council on Tuesday, Councilman Joe Cressy asked if Toronto could outright ban guns and was informed it would be up to the federal government to change the laws. So far this year, Toronto has seen over 200 shootings, nearly two dozen of which have been deadly.

According to police figures, as of July 14 there were 220 shootings in Toronto this year with 27 fatalities.
