The death toll of the attack in Toronto is up to nine, with many more injuries. We still don’t have much on the motivation of the attacker.
But there is this insane video of his apprehension:
After multiple pedestrians plowed down on Toronto sidewalk, driver gets out holding what appears to be a gun. Police arrest him. No shots fired. pic.twitter.com/xWHeylS1d8— Michel Boyer (@BoyerMichel) April 23, 2018
It appears as if he’s purposely trying to get the police officer to shoot him down by threatening him with what looks like a gun. Very odd. Apparently it doesn’t work because they took him into custody.
And they’re calling it terrorism now:
Former NYC Police commissioner Bill Bratton states on @MSNBC his sources in Canada say van driver in #Toronto was known to Police and now consider incident a terrorist attack. Motivation and affiliation unknown.— Malcolm Nance (@MalcolmNance) April 23, 2018
Check out our previous post showing how the story developed in real time on Twitter here.
But what kind of terrorism is this? We’ll update you as soon as we have confirmed info… or careless twitter speculation, either way…
