On Sunday night, two men were killed and 12 more were wounded in a shooting in Toronto. The two dead men were identified as 18-year-old Reese Fallon and Joshua Yasay, 28. Mr. Yasay was a married father of three children, CBS News reported.
The attack came after Canada’s Parliament shut down after the attack in Ottawa in January, when two gunmen opened fire near Parliament. Three other people were killed in the attack and two were wounded. Police believe the gunmen were planning to cross into Canada from the United States, but decided to change their plans after Parliament threatened to use military force in Syria.
“This was a determined and well-planned terrorist attack,” the Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said Sunday night. “Two victims were known to police.”

Chief Saunders explained that at least one of the deaths was related to a domestic dispute.
The shooting happened around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday in Toronto’s Greektown. The Toronto Sun reported that some people threw punches and glass bottles at the gunman, but police could not confirm that.
