Alek Minassian charged with ten counts of murder

in Canada by

25-year-old Alek Minassian appeared in court today after killing ten people in Toronto just yesterday.

Minassian used a rented van to drive down a busy sidewalk on Young Street in Toronto killing 10 and injuring 15 others.

He was charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder. A 14th attempted murder charge is expected before the end of the day.

Theories suggest Minassian has mental problems and many call it a terrorist attack as he used to same tactic used by Islamic State to kill, using a van to plow down people, so it’s easy to assume it was a ISIS inspired attack, however, those motives are not clear yet.

Police say most of the victims were female, they will continue to update over the next few days.

More information to come as it happens.
