A gunman fired shots in a crowded food court in one of Canada's busiest malls Saturday killing a man and injuring seven others, police said.
Police constable Victor Kwong said two people were in critical condition after being shot at Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto, including a 13-year old boy, and the 25-year-old man who was killed died at the scene. Kwong said six people were shot, including the deceased.
Two people were trampled on and pushed, including a pregnant woman who went into labor after she was pushed, Kwong said. The suspect had not been apprehended, he said.
Witnesses said multiple shots were fired in the mall's food court and that hundreds of panicked shoppers sprinted for the exits. The mall, which is popular with tourists, was evacuated. Swarms of people watched from outside as an injured man with visible bullet wounds was wheeled out on a stretcher.
Toronto Blue Jays baseball player Brett Lawrie tweeted that he sprinted out of the mall after hearing the shots....
