Van Driver Kills 10, Injures 15 in Toronto
We are living in evil times! The driver of a van in Toronto killed 10 people and injured another 15!
Alek Minassian, of Richmond Hill, mowed down a crowd of people in a rented van in Toronto on Monday, according to WGRZ. He killed 10 people and injured 15 before fleeing the scene. He was arrested after an apparently armed stand-off with police. Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale won't comment on whether it was an act of terrorism, saying it's too early to tell.
Witnesses say Minassian seemed to deliberately drive onto the sidewalk and into the crowd. The incident happened on busy Yonge Street around 1:30 p.m., as people were out enjoying the beautiful weather. Another driver, Ali Shaker, said "He just went on the sidewalk. He just started hitting everybody, man. He hit every single person on the sidewalk. Anybody in his way he would hit."
