TORONTO (AP) — Toronto’s police chief says a 10th person has died after a rented van plowed into pedestrians along a sidewalk in Toronto. Fifteen people are reported in the hospital.
Deputy Police Chief Peter Yuen says the driver of the van is in custody but Yuen has not provided any possible cause or motive in Monday’s incident. He says the investigation is continuing.
The suspect is identified as Alek Minassian, a 25-year-old from the Toronto suburb of Richmond Hill.
Police have shut down the Yonge and Finch intersection following the Monday afternoon incident and Toronto’s transit agency says it has suspended service on the subway line running through the area.
