Canadian officials still have a lot of unanswered questions following the mass shooting that occurred in Toronto, Canada Sunday night. But new reporting has revealed that law enforcement may have an idea of how the shooter obtained his firearm.
Here’s the report from CTV News with the details:
The gun used to shoot 15 people on a busy Toronto street was likely obtained from a “gang-related source,” according to a person familiar with the case.
CP24 safety specialist Cam Woolley says a police source has told him the semi-automatic handgun used in the shooting is illegal in Canada and was originally from the United States. American authorities are helping track the gun’s exact origin.
Early Wednesday morning Fox News reported that ISIS is claiming responsibility for the attack, saying the man “was a soldier of the Islamic State.” Canadian officials have made it clear, however, that there is no evidence the shooter had any ties to the terrorist organization. This is not surprising, as ISIS has falsely claimed responsibility for attacks in the past.
