(CNN) — One person was killed and seven others injured Saturday when shots were fired at the Eaton Centre shopping mall in Toronto, police said.
Six of the victims suffered gunshot wounds and one was grazed by a bullet, they said. The eighth victim was a pregnant woman who was knocked to the ground in the melee and suffered minor injuries. Two of the victims are in critical condition, including a 13-year-old boy, police said.
“At this time, we do not have the shooter,” said Constable Victor Kwong with the Toronto police in response to a reporter’s question, declining to provide more details.
Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said authorities do have a preliminary description of the susepct, but are waiting to release it to the public until they can gather more details.
“A lot of innocent people were hurt and a lot of innocent people were put at risk. And we will be relentless in our pursuit of the individual, or individuals, who were responsible for this violence,” he said.
