VIDEO: Toronto Police Arrest Murderous Van Driver
The spree on a busy city street left 10 dead & injured many moreBy Calibre Press | Apr 24, 2018
The man taken into custody after pedestrians were mowed down on a busy Toronto street Monday has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.
Alek Minassian, 25, was arrested after the white van was driven down a busy stretch of Yonge Street, between Sheppard and Finch avenues, and left a trail of carnage and panic in its wake.
Minassian, who is from Richmond Hill, Ont., appeared in court wearing a white jumpsuit on Tuesday morning. He showed little emotion, only giving his name and confirming he understood conditions imposed on him by the court.
Investigators will leave “no stone unturned” in their effort to find out “what happened and why,” Toronto Mayor John Tory said.
“We owe that, to the very least, to the people who were victimized by yesterday’s [Monday’s] attack” Tory said from the floor of council’s chamber at Toronto city hall.
“We owe it to each other and to the wonderful city that we are blessed to call home.”
Tory called the attack “unfathomable,” and offered support to the families and friends of the victims.
“This unfathomable loss of life has left our city in mourning,” the mayor said. “While we do not yet know the identities of all those who lost their lives, we can be sure that they were people who were loved, who had dreams and families, who had accomplished many things and would have done so much more.”
