"I heard a mother say, 'my son was shot,'" a man named Sergio told CityNews.

"We were just in the food court when I heard this sound. I turned around and I saw one man firing shots...Within seconds this big guy just fell beside me. I'm not sure if he's dead, but he fell."

Paramedics took one man out of the mall on a stretcher. He was rushed to St. Michael's hospital, where he remains.

A second victim, a woman, was also taken to hospital.

The mall was packed with shoppers at the time of the 6:30 p.m. incident and was later evacuated.

CityLine's Patrick Reynolds was inside the mall with his 13-year-old daughter at the time.

"We were locked inside the store. We were herded to the back and told to get down and turn off the lights," he said.

6. I almost went there very shortly before it happened!

I was going to go to the food court there and decided to go elsewhere.

8. I really really hope

This is NOT a copy of the standard American events,
you know, where the person has a thousand right wing books but people say that has nothing to do with it.

Best luck to all!

9. I can see the Bay is near

aka the really big Canadian dept store for those of us in the US.

That meant this person could have been gloing for a really BIG count.
