Toronto Van Attack: 10 Killed, Suspect Detained

@otuslive

TEN PEOPLE were killed and 15 injured after a rental van plowed into pedestrians on a sidewalk in northern Toronto, Canada. Police officials said the attack “definitely looked deliberate” and they have the suspect, Alek Minassian, in custody.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the incident a “tragic and senseless attack.

The style of the attack left many wondering if it was a terror attack following similar such incidents in the past but Canadian officials said it did not represent a larger threat to national security.

 

A witness to the dramatic detention of the suspect shared this video on Instagram.

The cop who chose to arrest the suspect and not shoot is now been commended for keeping a cool head when facing the driver.
