Suspected Danforth shooter’s family cites psychosis, ‘severe mental health challenges,’ after SIU identifies him as Faisal Hussain, 29, of Toronto

Just after 10 p.m. Sunday, a lone gunman dressed in dark clothing and a black baseball cap fired upon groups of people as they were enjoying a warm summer night out in Toronto’s Greektown neighbourhood — killing a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman, and injuring 13 others.

Twin investigations are now underway to determine key details in a shooting that has left the city grieving, shocking the residents in the vibrant Greektown neighbourhood where police descended Monday to collect evidence and photograph bullet casings.

Chief among the questions now are what motivated the gunman, and how he got a hold of a handgun — particularly in light of his family’s claims he suffered from psychosis. The family’s statement said the interventions of professionals were unsuccessful in helping him, and medications and therapy “were unable to treat him.”
