CAUTION: This video was pulled from Facebook. Meir had his notifications on, so that as he recorded this, there is the occasional loud Facebook ‘chime’ interrupting him. I did not want to edit or tamper with this video so I just put it on YT as is. Yes, it is annoying. Blame Facebook. I do all the time.
His family released a statement to CBC News expressing their “deepest condolences” to victims and their families, saying their son struggled with “severe mental health challenges.“
Meanwhile, my law-enforcement sources confirm investigators are looking at every avenue — including a potential Jihadi-inspired mission.
Files being reviewed by police include concern Hussain expressed “support” for a web site that was seen as “pro-ISIL,” says a law enforcement source.
Sources say police in Toronto and CSIS officials in Ottawa, as well as the RCMP, are looking into his past which sources say include his residence in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Hussain apparently had been spoken-to by authorities about his online activities. Sources say Toronto Police, the OPP and the RCMP have all had an interest in the now-deceased alleged shooter.
Also this tweet:
Its definitely not written by Sohail Hussain’s family. The language is lawyered and professionally positioned with selective release just to one outlet by a media-savvy law firm, many I know who operate in the Thorncliffe Park ghetto.
