The SIU has identified the deceased suspect in last night’s mass shooting on the Danforth as 29-year-old Faisal Hussain of Toronto. Police released his name after confirming his identity  with a family member and released it to the public due to the exceptional circumstances of the case. The family released a statement, printed here in full.

`We are at a terrible loss for words but we must speak out to express our deepest condolences to the families who are now suffering on account of our son’s horrific actions.

“We are utterly devastated by the incomprehensible news that our son was responsible for the senseless violence and loss of life that took place on the Danforth.

“Our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life. The interventions of professionals were unsuccessful. Medications and therapy were unable to treat him. While we did our best to seek help for him throughout his life of struggle and pain, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end.

“Our hearts are in pieces for the victims and for our city as we all come to grips with this terrible tragedy. We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives.

“Hussain Family”
