At least 5 people are dead.
Police have arrested a suspect after a white van mounted the curb and struck numerous pedestrians in Toronto.
The incident happened on Yonge Street south of Finch Avenue around 1:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Toronto Police Service.
Sunnybrook Hospital issued a statement saying that it’s trauma centre had received seven patients after “an incident involving a van striking a number of pedestrians.”
The unnamed and not-described suspect didn't have time to escape:
Video shared with CTV News shows the suspect pointing a small, dark object at police, with his back to the van. Police can be seen taking cover behind their vehicle and shouting at him to get down.
“Get down!” the officer is heard shouting.
“I have a gun in my pocket,” the suspect can be heard saying.
We shouldn't rush to judgement. He could be one of those horribly violent Japanese monks.
The non-English text which says "Tehran" somehow seems appropriate.
