Terror in Canada – Muslim terrorist behind Toronto shooting named: Faisal Hussain – trained to kill

The Muslim terrorist who opened fire into a Toronto restaurant,  murdered 10 year-old girl and a 18-year-old woman and wounded 13 others, has been identified as 29-year-old Pakistani-Canadian Faisal Hussain.

The Ontario Special Investigations Unit (SIU) said it was releasing his name due to ‘exceptional circumstances’,  calling the terror attack ‘tragic incident’.

According to the SIU, the Muslim terrorist was tracked by officers to Bowden Street during the shooting attack.

“An exchange of gunfire” then took place, before the terrorist fled. He was found dead about 100m away on Danforth Avenue.

In a statement released to media outlets, Hussain’s family said their son suffered from serious ‘mental health challenges’.

Sources say police in Toronto and CSIS officials in Ottawa, as well as the RCMP, are looking into his past which sources say include his residence in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Hussain apparently had been spoken-to by authorities about his online activities. Sources say Toronto Police, the OPP and the RCMP have all had an interest in the now-eliminated Jihadist.

What law enforcement is saying is that the terror attack was planned, and Hussain was “well known to Toronto Police” for investigations into past crimes “involving weapons and violence.”

 

UPDATE:

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the shooting in Toronto on Sunday in which a Muslim terrorist murdered two girls and wounded 13, the terror group’s AMAQ news agency said on Wednesday.

The Muslim terrorist “was a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the attack in response to calls to target the citizens of the coalition countries,” a statement by the terror group said.
