Shooting with multiple victims on Danforth Avenue in Toronto

One person is dead and 13 people are injured after a gunman opened fire in the middle of the street late Sunday in Toronto.

Police say at least nine victims have been shot, and they have been rushed to hospital for treatment.

Toronto Mayor John Tory told reporters that the city has a gun problem and guns were too readily available to too many people.

The incident occurred at Danforth and Logan Avenues at 10pm, police said.

In videos posted on social media, multiple gunshots can be heard and police cars are seen at the scene. Police sirens can be heard also and it is now believed that the shooter was firing at police.
