A gunman opened fire in the Canadian city of Toronto killing one woman and injuring 13 others including a young girl, before being shot dead on Sunday night.
The unidentified man launched the attack with a handgun in the neighbourhood known as Greektown.
“Other than the shooter, we have a young lady that is deceased,” Toronto police chief Mark Saunders told reporters.
“We are looking at all possible motives… and not closing any doors,” he added.
Paramedics, firefighters and police soon converged on the scene of the shooting in Toronto’s east end, which has many popular restaurants, cafes and shops.
According to reports, deaths from gun violence in Toronto city spiked by 53 percent to 26 this year.
About 200 police officers have been deployed in the city since July 20 in response to the recent spate of shootings, which city officials have blamed on gang violence.
