'No evidence to support' ISIS was behind Toronto attack

Two dead, 13 injured in Toronto shooting | GuelphMercury.com

Police identified an 18-year-old Toronto woman who died in the shooting as Reese Fallon.

Both victims of Sunday's shooting that injured 13 people in Toronto's Greektown are being remembered for how they lived.

Kozis' family have requested privacy as they process their grief, according to a statement from police.

Kozis was involved in synchronised swimming, and her Markham Synchro Club issued a statement calling her "a attractive, aspiring athlete".

An unnamed waiter at Mezes Restaurant on the Danforth was also among those injured, though coworkers said he has already been released from hospital.

In a statement issued Wednesday, Goodale's office said that there is still no known connection between the incident and national security.

"Julianna was a lovely, aspiring athlete who was in her third year in our sport".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrote on Twitter on Monday: "The people of Toronto are strong, resilient and courageous - and we'll be there to support you through this hard time". There will also be a book of condolences at the Markham Civic Centre. Soft pink rose petals have been scattered around a smiling picture of Kozis, sitting on the table draped in white cloth.

Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti said the city would lower its flags to honour the girl and that the community north of Toronto had been shaken and hurt by this "senseless act of violence".

A girl. 10 years old. It's a vibrant time in her life.

"Every time he saw you he'd smile, be polite, respectful", Sukhera said.

"He was always alone and would walk with his head down, but then would look at me and smile and say hello", she said.

"That picture said a lot..." He was very lucky I think.

Kitchener Centre MP Raj Saini mentioned how we need to "help one another during this hard time".

Kozis was said to be with her family at Caffe Demetres, a popular spot for sweet crepes and coffee, when the sound of gunshots broke through the warm summer night.

Jody Steinhauer was celebrating her birthday with family at Christina's restaurant when they heard 10 to 15 shots.

One friend described Fallon as a "very happy" person.

"My personal perspective. I don't own a gun and I can't see why anyone else would", said Vaughan, parliamentary secretary responsible for housing and urban affairs.

"I can imagine the devastation of any mother. that had to lose a loved one", she said. "I will support them with anything I can". Her children visit the area almost every night, she said, adding she's grieving for the families of those killed.

"It's Toronto", said Augustino Speciale, who paused to smell a bouquet of white lilies attached to a lamppost.

Gunfire disrupted the bustling east-end neighbourhood at around 10 p.m. on Sunday, causing chaos on restaurant patios and sidewalks.

Although it is still unknown how the man behind Sunday's mass shooting obtained the gun, Lee added that Bill C-71 would allow for more detailed background checks that would go further back into people's history.

Thirteen others, ranging from age 17 to 59, were hospitalized after the Sunday night attack. His family has said he suffered from lifelong "severe mental health challenges" including psychosis and depression and had not responded to numerous treatment approaches, including therapy and medication.
