    Exclamation Bad & Ugly. Mall Shooting In Toronto Today. One Dead, Seven More Down.

    Toronto police have confirmed that a Saturday evening shooting in the Eaton Centre has left one person dead and seven others injured.

    Const. Victor Kwong of the Toronto police said that one victim was pronounced dead at the downtown shopping mall. Two more are in critical condition and another has "life-threatening" injuries.

    It is not yet clear whether all the injuries resulted from the gun shots.

    CBC News saw at least three stretchers carrying wounded people from the mall.

    "At this time we do not have the shooter," said Kwong. Investigators have not yet released a description of the suspect, nor clarified whether they are looking for more than one person.

    Kwong added that the police have received conflicting reports and are still reviewing multiple videos submitted by the public.

    Charlotte Holmgren, an eye-witness who was at the Eaton Centre at the time of the shooting and heard the shots, said that the incident took place in the mall's north end food court.

    Witnesses who were in the food court when the shooting began told CBC's Amanda Margison that shoppers abandoned everything from strollers to purses as they fled. Others hid beneath tables until police ordered a full evacuation.

    One employee in a noodle store told Margison she heard at least five gunshots, as she and several others ran into the storage room and locked themselves inside.

    The shopping centre was surrounded by emergency vehicles, as police cordoned off the section of Yonge Street between Queen and Dundas streets.

    Videos posted to Twitter showed a man in a stretcher being loaded into the back of an ambulance in the aftermath of the incident, which took place at around 6:30 p.m. ET.

    A witness told CBC News that crowds of people ran from the scene with "terror" on their faces.

    One witness described seeing at least one person shot, adding that she originally thought she was caught up in a shooting spree.

    The Toronto Transit Commission has suspended subway service to Queen and Dundas stations. The Queen and Dundas streetcars were diverted at Church Street to the east and Bay Street to the west to avoid Yonge street.

    But I thought Canada was the land of peace and reason. At least they have come to some senses concerning the draconian gun registration and such in the last year.

    Actually, along with this, are they still having a big MC problem in Toranto, or has that quieted down?

    Wow, literally thousands of people fled the mall, and the shooter appears to have escaped in the confusion. Here is an update:

    There must be some mistake. Guns are not allowed in Toronto.
