The 25-year-old suspect, Alek Minassian, plowed a rented van into pedestrians on a crowded Toronto sidewalk on Tuesday, killing 10 people and injuring 15 others in Canada's deadliest mass killing in decades. Police Chief Saunders said, "The officer [on Monday] did a fantastic job with respect to utilizing his ability of understanding the circumstance and environment and having a peaceful resolution at the end of the day".

Anne Marie D'Amico was the first among the 10 killed to be publicly named.

He says his grandmother nearly had as much love for the Blue Jays and the Maple Leafs "as she did for her family".

Tennis Canada said D'Amico had volunteered at its marquis Rogers Cup tournament every summer since the age of 12, starting out as a "ball girl" and eventually heading its stadium control committee.

"She wouldn't stop until she went the extra mile for others".

The man suspected of running down numerous pedestrians on a bustling stretch of Yonge Street north of downtown Toronto is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday at 10 a.m. She was voted volunteer of the year in 2016.

"Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those impacted by this tragic event", Invesco Canada Peter Intraligi said in a statement to CBC. She helped build houses in the northern Dominican Republic in 2015 and 2017, according to Dave Hamilton, the charity's manager of school partnerships.

"What is clear is that gender-based violence and toxic masculine senses of entitlement affects us all", she said.

"It comforts us knowing that the world has a chance to know her and we hope that in this time, people fight with the same altruism rather than anger and hatred".

Dr. Dirk Huyer, chief coroner for Ontario, told a news conference Tuesday that it will be several days before his office can finalize the process of identification, though some families have been notified that their loved one is likely dead.

"If you take guns out of the mix, Canada and the US are identical", she said, citing statistics indicating the two countries have similar rates of non-firearm homicides. "Almost had as much love for the Blue Jays and Leafs as she did for her family".

Renuka Amarasinghe, 48, a single mom who immigrated here from Sri Lanka, had just finished her first day at Earl Haig Secondary School where she'd started work in nutrition services.

"Toronto was a great city yesterday, it is a great city today and it will be a great city tomorrow", he said.

A South Korean news agency said two unnamed Korean nationals were also among those killed. Asked by reporters after the hearing if he had anything to say, the family member replied "sorry". He said the van was repeatedly mounting the pavement and running into people.

The two male victims we know about are Chul Min (Eddie) Kang, known as an fantastic chef at a downtown steakhouse with an addictive smile; and Munir Najjar, who was here from Jordan with his wife to visit their son, a vocalist with the Canadian Arabic Orchestra.

Toronto City Councilor Cesar Palacio said D'Amico was a friend of his daughter, and he remembers her as "a brilliant young girl" who was interested in improving society. "I hope that we will, as a city, remind ourselves of the fact that we are admired around the world for being inclusive and for being accepting and understanding and considerate, and that we are united in standing in solidarity, especially with those who have fallen victim to this bad tragedy today".

Several victims have not been identified.

Obviously the team wants to get everything right before they release all of the names of the victims to the public.
