VIDEO: Terror Suspect Kills 9 With Van, Points Gun At Cop

A terror suspect drove through a crowd of pedestrians then pointed a gun at a cop.

Toronto, Canada – Nine people are dead and 16 more have been injured after van intentionally ran over them in Toronto on Monday afternoon (video below).

A white rental van mowed down pedestrians over a mile-long swath of busy city street, CNN reported.

A law enforcement official source told CNN that they believed the driver hit the pedestrians intentionally, and that no medical issues were indicated.

Canadian Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale said it was too soon to determine if the crash was a case of international terrorism, CBS News reported.

However, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC that sources have told him that the incident is being investigated as an act of terrorism.

The incident occurred as cabinet ministers from the all the major industrial countries met in Canada to discuss a range of international issues in the run-up to the G7 meeting near Quebec City in June, CBS News reported.

Canada had not changed its terrorism alert level and the minister said he had no information that would indicate the need to do so.

After he finished terrorizing people on the streets north of downtown Toronto, the driver stopped his van on a sidewalk.

The van was located by police, and the suspect was taken into custody after a brief standoff where he appeared to be pointing a gun at an officer.

The standoff was recorded on cell phone video (below.)

In the video, the van’s driver was seen standing on a city sidewalk pointing what is believed to be a gun at a police officer.

“Get down. Get down or you’ll be shot,” the officer yelled at the armed man.

The officer began approaching the man in the video just as the person filming turned the camera away for a few seconds.

When the focus returned to the scene of the incident, the armed man had been taken to the ground and the officer was putting handcuffs on him.

Authorities have said they do not know what motivated the attack.

“At this point it's too early to tell what if any motive there was. We are also unable right now to tell the extent or the number of persons injured," Toronto Police Spokeswoman Meaghan Gray said.

The Toronto police had shut down a major intersection where the incident occurred, and suspended subway service through the affected area, CBS reported.

“I can assure the public all our available resources have been brought in to address this tragic situation and to investigate this situation,” Toronto Police Deputy Chief Peter Yuen.

The city has established two hotlines – one for people looking for family members and one for witnesses, Chief Yuen said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted his condolences to those affected by the tragedy.

If someone points a gun at me, there will be no yelling to drop the gun. The only thing you'll hear out of me is "dispatch have an ambulance respond for one down".

Keep letting in these people who wont assimilate and respect others religion or way of life. CANADA AND ALL OF WESTERN EUROPE IS LOST WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT. THE WESTERN WORLD WAS BLITZ CRED BY ISLAMIC WORLD. GERMANY, SWEDEN, ENGLAND, France, Belgium, Austria, Austrailia, totally gone.
London person stabbed every 90 minutes and the perpertaitors do not make the sign of the cross.

You will want to say "not ALL Christians believe in that!" and you would be correct. Same goes for all Muslims, if this guy is Muslim.

(Edited to not sound as confrontational)
@bronx163 the Bible does indeed advocate killing non-believers, more than once actually.

Conveniently someone was there to film it but miss a crucial aspect of the arrest. Something smells off to me. I smell fish.

I noticed that, too. Why point the camera down at that moment?

He kept saying he had a gun in his pocket? Almost expecting the police to shoot him? Weird.

The fact he wasn't shot is a tribute to the patience and professionalism of that police officer. No one would have blamed him for shooting.

Well, it’s not just about all Christians not believing in it, but rather the fact that it isn’t an acceptable idea in Christianity. At least not anymore.

Where’s with Islam, the context of its holy book actively still calls for violent takeover of other countries. And a majority of the believers still think sharia should be instituted.

Well, if this was a story about mass shooting. Most of the time you have some Europeans,Brits or Canadians talking about how great there countries are without guns. Wonder what they’re saying about autos right now.

If this was any place in the US, that human waste would have been shot. And rightly so. Unbelievable that he wasn’t! People like this deserve to be taken OUT of society, ASAP! Get them to their eternal fate of hell, where they belong!

CloserFocus

How bizarre that people are just casually walking behind the scene, as if there is nothing going on. WTH? And only ONE cop is responding to this??? ZERO backup? He doesn’t use his car to help protect himself? Instead, he actually shuts the door & walks out, leaving himself wide open! HELLO???? Who trained these guys?!
And zero footage of the murderer being taken down. Very, very odd, indeed. Toto, we’re definitely NOT in Kansas!

So, the headline sent to me, says a K9 was killed. Obviously not. And get the # of Deaths right too. TEN.

CloserFocus
CloserFocus

The headline sent to my inbox said K9. The headline here, reads differently. Actually, 10 were killed, so that is wrong, too. As for the arrest..this perp was taunting that cop to kill him by pointing what appears to be a gun at him & then pretending to draw it at him, as well. This goes on for waaay too long, as they exchange words. ONE cop for a situation like THAT??? Seriously??? NOT in the US! And he WOULD have been shot multiple times! As he SHOULD have been...DEAD. Where’s the video of the ‘take down’ ? ODD, doesn’t even cover this.

Was the suspect holding a wallet or a gun? I keep hearing wallet from other sources.

The major point here is that the Canadian police DID NOT kill this guy and now they can find out what causes someone to do this kind of thing. But you Blue Assholes all think that the Canadian police were mistaken to not shoot him dead on the spot. You all think they acted stupidly for showing restraint. This is what's wrong with the police in the good ole USA. I can't believe that the "Officers of the Law" on this website are actually admitting that the correct response was to shoot him dead. Does anyone see a problem with this? Do you wonder why citizens don't trust you?

The Canadian officer did not do a very good job despite the outcome. If the terrorist had a gun, the officer would be dead. He used poor tactics and is lucky to be alive. The only way I would give him a break if he could tell me he immediately was able to recognize that the object being pointed at him was not a gun. Personally, I think that is impossible considering how quickly the whole thing went. Also, you have to consider that this terrorist just intentionally mowed down a dozen people with his vehicle. You should be grateful you never wore the uniform because in all likelihood, you would be dead.

@LEO0301
He could just be a better cop than even you imagine yourself being. Looks like he saw immediately that the guy didn't have a gun, and acted accordingly.

LEO0301
LEO0301

I don't know what he saw and neither do you. All I can say from my perspective as a police officer is that he used poor tactics. You, of course, wouldn't understand.

John-Brown
John-Brown

Yep,. I was shocked when I saw him step away from his cruiser to confront this asshole that any half decent cop would have instantly recognized as a likely deadly threat.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@LEO0301
But you were never a cop, so your statement doesn't make sense.

What does make sense though, is that this cop correctly assessed the threat and handles it like a boss. American cops should maybe receive training from Canadian cops, since it looks like they have nerves of steel and apparently many American cops whohave shoot unarmed people have nerves of wet tissue.

LEO0301
LEO0301

It's hard for me to believe you were actually in the military when you make these stupid comments. I can't imagine what type of tactical training you received if you honestly believe this Canadian officer's response was correct. Now go back and hide behind your computer and let the real men of the world handle dangerous situations.

@LEO0301

Part of my experience is from Blackwater (including cops) and other American service membera, part of it is from joint exercises with Brits, Australians, and israelis.

And it looks like his response was great. He was by himself, controlled the situation, and arrested a criminal. All because his nerves of steel allowed him to see that this guy didn't have a gun and that he was looking to die by being shot.

If anything, this was one of the most impressive police encounters I've ever seen.

Update! This wasn't religious terrorism. This was terrorism based on the fact that this guy was lonely and couldn't get laid.

If anyone is interested, this guy, and Dylann Roof, and Elliott Rodger are what people call "incels."

Lonely, usually white, usually homely guys who are upset they can't get any.
