The gunman who opened fire along Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, killing two and wounding 13 others, has now been identified as 29-year-old Toronto resident, Faisal Hussain.

At approximately 10 pm on July 22, a man walking along Danforth Avenue fired shots at groups of people several times, says the SIU.

Toronto police confirmed a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old female have both died as a result of the injuries, while 13 remain in hospital.

Officers located the shooter on Bowden Street and an exchange of gunfire took place. The SIU then said that the suspect fled the area and was located, deceased, on Danforth Avenue.
