"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.

A witness, Phil Zullo, told Canadian Press that he saw police arresting a man who had been driving a Ryder rental truck and saw people "strewn all over the road" where the incident occurred.

"It must have seen about five, six people being resuscitated by bystanders and by ambulance drivers," Zullo said. "It was awful. Brutal."

Witnesses are saying the driver was acting very angry and unstable and yelling at police to shoot him. He was gesturing as though he had a weapon. A TO officer took him into custody.

Sources confirmed to CBS News that the suspect has been identified as Alek Minassian, 25.

There is a CompSci student named Alek Minassian at Seneca College (Richmond Hill, Ontario).
No other source has come forward with a name for the perpetrator.

My first guess would be the religion of peace but we won't know for sure for a while.

Video of the perpetrator getting arrested.

This is fascinating: Minute after minute one after the other newsoutlets and blogs copy the alleged name of the perpetrator, Alek Minassian.
Now the UK DailyStar writes "Police have identified a suspect named as Alek Minassian."

I hope for them that they got the right name.

I am hoping no one I knew has died or has been injured. It is not far from where I grew up.

That's like the fourth one so far, right? Elliot, Chris Mercer, Nick Cruz, and now this guy.

Sodini, Lepine, and Hennard were the proto incel-shooters.

Looks like a 4Chan stunt to me. This screenshot surfaced first in a /pol/ thread. The wording
Quote :
Private (Recruit) Minassian Infantry 00010, wishing to speak to Sgt 4chan please. C23249161. The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We Will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!
sounds a little too chliché to be true.

Maybe we need to ban vans, like the UK and Australia have done with guns?

These vehicle-ramming type attacks get kind of frequent. It's such an ugly and lazy method. Didn't Lanza write something to that effect? How he could not get into this method because it was too unpersonal?

Wouldn't surprise me.

I believe they also started the Cruz trained with a white supremacy group thing that the media ate up.

Hi, Elliot Rodger here.

CBS News really dug up Rodger from his grave and sliced part of his videos into their news report. It's really laughable.
Then they proceede to explain incels and consult an expert to talk about incels, 4Chan, Reddit, Memes etc.
If this is indeed a 4Chan stunt like Pizzagate, it's interesting to see it unfold.

Found the source in an e-mail from December 11, 2012:

Lanza used to phrase "too mediated".

This is such bullshit.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Excerpts from the Globe and Mail article:

One classmate, who worked on a project with him at Seneca in 2015, described Mr. Minassian as someone with a significant social or mental disability who had a hard time speaking to people, difficulty under pressure, and constant physical tics where he shook his hands and tapped his head.

The man said he heard that Mr. Minassian could code well.

One Seneca student in computer studies said Mr. Minassian had graduated from the program just last week.

Saying he did not want to be publicly identified as an associate of a suspected killer because he is currently being interviewed for summer internships, this Seneca student added that he didn’t think Mr. Minassian had lined up any work after college.

The student looking for internships said the Mr. Minassian who attended his school was a whiz with working with specialized computer chips known as graphical processing units. These chips have traditionally been used to help process images, but can also have other applications where they give computers a lot more processing power.

The student said he wouldn’t describe Mr. Minassian as a loner, exactly, because he would converse when necessary. But, he added, he didn’t interact well.

On Monday night police cordoned off a Richmond Hill home property records show belong to Vahe and Sona Minassian. Officers first arrived around 3:30 p.m., neighbours said. A Haig Minassian, three years older than Alek Minassian, has also listed the address as home in bankruptcy records.

In 2009, Sona Minassian was quoted in a story in the Richmond Hill Liberal lamenting that her son, who suffered from a form of autism called Asperger syndrome, was at risk of losing access to a special program called Helpmate that assisted the teen to “work though his cognitive barriers and prepare him for the workplace.”
