One dead, seven injured in shooting at Toronto’s Eaton Centre
Pandemonium erupted at the largest shopping mall in downtown Toronto Saturday after a shooter let off a string of bullets in a food court packed with weekend shoppers.
The hail of bullets killed a 25-year-old man, injured seven other people and sparked a frenzied mass exodus of the sprawling multi-level shopping centre around 6:30 p.m.
The shooting appears to have been a targeted one that left innocent bystanders caught in the middle, and police vowed to track the suspect down.
“It was unbelievable … It was out of the blue,” said 19-year-old Marcus Neves-Polonio who was working in the mall’s food court when he saw a man pull out a gun and start firing.
