In Canada, two people were killed, including a police officer, and at least three were injured after a shooter opened fire west of Toronto on Monday (September 12), an official said. 

Ontario Premier Doug Ford said on Twitter, “I’m horrified by today’s senseless violence, including the killing of a Toronto police officer.” 

Local police issued an alert about an armed suspect who fled a strip mall in Mississauga, Ontario in a stolen vehicle after the shooting around 4:30 pm (local time).

News agency AFP reported that moments later, police in nearby Milton said they had arrested the suspect following another shooting in that town. 

Police in Mississauga told AFP two people had been shot, but there are no details. 

unkindwhile, Milton police tweeted that “1 person has been pronounced deceased at the scene and 2 others have been transported to hospital.” 

Canada has been shocked by such incidents in the recent past. Earlier this month, a stabbing spree in a remote Saskatchewan Indigenous community on September 4 left 10 dead and 18 wounded. 

One of the suspects, in that case, was found dead, believed to have been murdered by his brother, who was later arrested after a four-day manhunt and died in custody.
