"NBC, ABC, CBC, stop harassing my friends and family", he wrote in a public Facebook post that received thousands of likes and dozens of messages of support.

The "incel rebellion": did sexual frustration trigger Toronto rampage?

"We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys!" the post read, monikers used in the community to describe people who have no trouble finding sexual partners. No one was killed, but Sharif faces multiple counts of attempted murder.

He said the youngest were in their twenties and the eldest in their eighties.

Work is now being done to positively identify all of the victims in the attack, but that could take some time it turns out.

Suspect Alek Minassian learned of the charges in a brief initial hearing before a judge in Toronto on Tuesday.

A man believed to be a relative of Mr Minassian's sat in the front row of the court and wept.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the event "horrific" and "senseless".

Trudeau added that the attack "hasn't changed the overall threat level in Canada" although it took place as envoys from the Group of Seven industrialized nations met in Toronto. The officer slowly steps toward him and yells "Get down, get down!"

This entry has been corrected to delete reference to three South Koreans being unaccounted for.

Minassian spent a brief and undistinguished two months in 2017 as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces before dropping out. He requested to be voluntarily released.

Toronto police said they were aware of a post on Minassian's Facebook account that referred to a misogynistic online subculture for "involuntarily celibate" men.

"Whether you kept in touch with her very closely or you didn't talk to her for this past year, it just felt like you saw her smile yesterday", Abdullah Snobar said.

Her remembered her as "super-positive, always smiling, a amusing person, always up for a challenge, and really wanted to help people out".

Suspect Alek Minassian, 25, entered a Toronto courtroom on Tuesday morning.

Palacio said he spoke with D'Amico's parents, who live in his ward.

She worked for Invesco, a US -based investment company with a Canada office located near where the mile-long van attack began.

NBC first contacted him and his family, he said. She started out as a ball girl and worked her way up to be an "integral" part of the volunteer team, most recently leading a committee on stadium control, the association said. Their names have not been disclosed. President David Agnew confirmed the death in an e-mail to students and staff in which he said two other students suffered minor injuries that did not require hospitalization.

How did the incident unfold?

According to the city, the money raised will help those victimized or traumatized by the ordeal, which claimed the lives of 10 people and wounded 14 others.

One witness told City News that the driver was "hitting anything that comes in the way".

As the van continued, the man said he sounded his horn to try to warn pedestrians.

"I've got to tell you that was dramatic, sitting there watching that video", said CNN law enforcement analyst and former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Josh Campbell.

In the wake of the attack, a tarp covered a body outside Ssam, a Korean barbecue restaurant just north of the food stall. Debris and items of clothing were scattered across the pavements and road. After the minute-long standoff, the officer finally persuaded the man to lie down on the ground and put his arms behind his back.

"I don't care. Get down", the officer said, before arresting Mr Minassian without firing a shot.

Not a single shot was sacked during the dramatic exchange and the officer is being lauded for his cool-headed arrest.

In the meantime, Toronto Mayor John Tory said Tuesday that while residents may be shaken, they have not been broken.
