Toronto Driver Left 'Cryptic' Facebook Message Before Attack


He has been named as 25-year-old Alek Minassian from north Toronto.

"They are secluded right now and they ask everybody to accept their privacy", he said.

Ten people were killed Monday and 15 injured when a van deliberately plowed into pedestrians along a busy street in Toronto in the latest such incident in a major Western city. He declined to specify the genders of the victims. The suspect and a police officer faced off, their guns drawn. He surrendered seven minutes after police received the first emergency call.

Forsyth was a resident of a Toronto Community Housing complex in the area where the van attack occurred. Rodger went on a stabbing and shooting rampage after filming the video, killing six people and wounding 14 others before taking his own life in 2014. He also appeared to be determined to die.

Minassian had no prior criminal record but former classmates say he had mental health issues and was bullied. "He was an odd guy, and hardly mixed with other students", said Ari Blaff, a former high school classmate who is a graduate student in worldwide relations at the University of Toronto. "I feel too many things, I'm still in shock".

Minassian did not express strong ideological views or harass women, Blaff said, but he was isolated and others privately made fun of him. "He was looking people directly in the eye, making eye contact, it was so scary". "He would shut down completely". The police officer stood his ground, and eventually apprehended him on the sidewalk and handcuffed him. Graham Gibson says he is prohibited from discussing a possible motive because suspect Alek Minassian has been charged in the case. Videos of his arrest were posted online.

While Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said there appears to be "no national security connection" based on information now available, Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said the incident was clearly deliberate and nothing has been ruled out. C23249161. The incel Rebellion has already begun!

Ganaron los Spurs y habrá Manu, al menos, por una noche más
Kevin Durant fue el mejor por los Warriors , encestó 24 tantos y capturó 13 balones. Así, los Spurs siguen con vida y sueñan con revertir la serie contra toda lógica.

"We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys!" the post read, monikers used in the community to describe people who have no trouble finding sexual partners. "All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!" Some posts were titled "all women are sluts" and "reasons why women are the embodiment of evil". "We have found and immediately deleted the suspect's Facebook account".

Minassian attended Seneca College, according to his LinkedIn profile; a spokeswoman for the Toronto-area school didn't immediately respond to an inquiry about him Tuesday.

While he appeared to be skilled at computers, he did not take to military life.

The Department of National Defence said he was a member of the forces for only two months, from August 23 to October 25, 2017. "The men and women of our police services represent the best of what it means to be Canadian, and today we thank them". His next court appearance will be a bail hearing on May 10. Though the names of most weren't immediately released, their families began mourning and memorials in their honor grew. A police officer was praised for restraint after he refused to shoot Minassian despite his claim that he had a gun.

The first of the dead to be publicly identified was Anne Marie D'Amico, who worked at an investment management company near the scene. She helped build houses in the northern Dominican Republic in 2015 and 2017, according to Dave Hamilton, the charity's manager of school partnerships.

Other victims in Monday's attack included people from Jordan and South Korea, as well as a local college student.
