UPDATE: Today’s deadly attack in Toronto left 9 dead and another 16 injured, according to authorities at a press conference that just concluded. Authorities have also stated that the rampage was intentional.
The suspect is in custody.
Police are reporting that a white van jumped a curb and drove for more than half a mile on a sidewalk while mowing down several pedestrians just north of downtown Toronto before fleeing the scene.
