At the cause of the event, one other person also died, according to local media, and at least three people were wounded in the violence.

“I’m horrified by today’s senseless violence, including the killing of a Toronto police officer,” Ontario Premier Doug Ford said on Twitter.

Milton police meanwhile tweeted that “1 person has been pronounced deceased at the scene and 2 others have been transported to hospital.”

Canada has been rocked by several incidents of mass violence in recent years, including a stabbing spree in a remote Saskatchewan Indigenous community on September 4 that left 10 dead and 18 wounded.

One of the suspects in that case was found dead, believed to have been murdered by his brother, who was later arrested after a four-day manhunt and died in custody.

And another shooter killed six worshippers at a Quebec City mosque in January 2017.
