REUTERS – Ten people were killed and 15 others injured after a 25-year-old appeared to deliberately mow down pedestrians in North Toronto yesterday (April 23).

Sources stated that the suspect in the incident, Alek Minassian, was not known to police and his motives were still unknown. Citing government officials, foreign media said Minassian was not associated with any organized militant group.

Federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said: “There would appear to be no national security connection.”

Officials declined to answer questions about what motivated the driver to steer his vehicle toward people just before 1:30 PM local time in the northern section of Canada’s biggest city.
