One dead and at least nine, including a child, are injured in a mass shooting in Toronto

One person was killed and at least nine others were injured after a gunman opened fire in Toronto on Sunday evening. 
Witnesses say that a man dressed in black opened fire in Greektown on Danforth, a popular area of the city full of restaurants and stores, at around 10pm on Sunday.
Between 15 and 20 gunshots were heard. 
Police say that the shooter is no longer active although it is not yet clear whether the gunman was killed or arrested. 

Victims reportedly suffered 'significant injuries'. One person was pronounced dead at the scene, six others were rushed to a trauma center, a child was taken to a pediatric trauma center, and two others were taken to hospital.
An unknown number of people are being treated at the scene.  
A witness at the scene said multiple victims were injured on different blocks.
Jody Steinhauer told CBC News she was with her family at Christina's restaurant on the Danforth when she heard a blast of gunfire, which she initially mistook for firecrackers.

Suddenly, she and the other customers were told to run to the back of the restaurant.
'We started to hear people scream out front,' Steinhauer said. 
Toronto Paramedic Services confirm that at least ten people have been taken to local hospitals. 
Police are warning people to stay away from the area. They are also appealing for witnesses and have been loading them onto several city buses to take them to local police divisions.
