Makeshift vigils have popped up in public spaces in Toronto’s Greektown as the city grieves for the victims of the mass shooting on Sunday night that has claimed two lives, and left another 13 individuals in hospitals with injuries.
Chalk drawings on the sidewalks of Withrow Park, candles, flowers, and messages of hope are just some of the ways Torontonians are showing their support for the neighbourhood.
Residents shocked by the tragic events have also set up crowdfunding pages to support vicitims, made a call for donations of blood, and rallied behind the neighbourhood’s most iconic street festival in solidarity.
Police are asking witnesses to upload any videos or photos from the incident that occurred on Sunday. A special website had been set up dedicated to the investigation, and can be found here.
Victim Services Toronto also invites anyone experiencing trauma from the Danforth shooting to contact Victim Services by calling 416-808-7066.
