1 person dead in Eaton Centre shooting, 7 others injured
Rogers radio news staff and CityNews.ca Jun 02, 2012 23:00:13 PM

TORONTO, Ont. - Toronto police confirmed a 25-year-old man has died and seven more are injured in a shooting inside the Eaton Centre in Toronto, Saturday.

Toronto police Const. Victor Kwong said the man was shot, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police also said five other people were also shot -- a 13-year-old boy and a 20-year-old man are in critical condition in hospital; two women and a man are in serious condition; and another woman received minor injuries.

Also, a 30-year-old pregnant woman was trampled as shoppers fled the mall. She went into labour and is now in hospital.

Police said the shooter is still at large.

Toronto police Chief Bill Blair said he is "shocked" and "saddened" by what happened. "A lot of innocent people were hurt," he added.

What sucks is that if they ever find the shooter, he will get some pathetic prison sentence.

Chris Kalakonis told CBC News he found out his son Nick was shot in the leg from a Facebook message.

The young man, who lost his phone in the chaos, was shot while lying on the floor, he said. His girlfriend sent a Facebook message to inform his family after the 6:30 p.m. ET shooting.

At first Kalakonis didn't believe his son had been shot, but when he turned on a television he realized it could be true. He called nearby St. Michael's Hospital and confirmed that his son had been shot in the leg.

Kalakonis called the situation "senseless," but added he's grateful things didn't end up worse.
... your bf was shot and you inform his family by typing a facebook msg... fucking facebook addicts
