The first was in 2014 when it said two attacks against Canadian soldiers, one south of Montreal and the other in Ottawa, were "the direct result" of its call a month earlier for attacks on the West.

"At this time, there is no national-security nexus to the investigation", said Hilary Peirce, a spokeswoman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.

"Our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life".

Hussain, was found dead after he exchanged gunfire with police and fled, though it remains unclear whether he killed himself or was killed by police.

Cressy said crime prevention programs, helping those released from prison find jobs, mentoring kids and diversion programs are all initiatives that should be beefed up, along with meeting people's mental health needs.

"For the last 10 years, we've had a steady erosion of gun control in Canada and for four years, we've seen successive increases in gun homicide across the country", said Wendy Cukier, president of the Coalition for Gun Control and a professor at Ryerson University.

"While we did our best to seek help for him throughout his life of struggle and pain, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end", Hussain's family said.

"Our hearts are in pieces for the victims and for our city as we all come to grips with this bad tragedy", Hussain's parents said. "We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives".

On Monday evening, police executed a search warrant on the apartment in a modest high-rise building that he shared with his parents, and were seen carrying out boxes of evidence. An autopsy on Hussain was expected to take place on Tuesday.

Authorities have not yet speculated on a motive for the attack.

"She was. smart, passionate and full of energy. It is a huge loss", said Canadian Member of Parliament Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, who knew Ms Fallon.

Toronto police say they have "no evidence" that Faisal Hussain's shooting rampage on the Danforth was connected to ISIS. The victims range from ages 10 to 59.

A gunman opened fire on Sunday around 10 p.m. on Danforth Avenue in an area lined with restaurants and cafés. "The people who are shooting up our streets are not the people who will be obeying any gun bans". They expressed shock at a shooting in such a neighborhood.

Canada has relatively strict gun laws and traditionally low levels of gun violence, particularly compared with its neighbor the United States. He was very lucky I think.

In recent years, they say, investigators have noticed a stark shift in where guns used to commit crimes are coming from. The person allegedly responsible for the attack died from a gunshot wound, but the authorities did not specify whether he was shot by the police.

Toronto deployed about 200 police officers from July 20 in response to the recent spate in shootings, which city officials have blamed on gang violence.

"Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?" Toronto has long prided itself as being one of the safest big cities in the world.

Toronto Mayor John Tory urged residents to have confidence in what police are saying.

The violence hasn't stopped some from bringing their families to some of the city's most popular attractions, such as the affected Greektown area.
