Additional staff have been called into Toronto to help with the process of identifying all of the victims correctly.
"That isn't me, and my family has no relation to him", Alex Minassian, who had been confused with alleged Toronto van attack suspect Alek Minassian, told Yahoo Canada News.
"This is exactly the type of de-escalation. and response to these types of confrontations that we hope to see", said Ontario ombudsman Paul Dube. The officer slowly steps toward him and yells "Get down, get down!" "This will take some time", said Mary Lou David, a music teacher who came to pay her respects at the memorial site.
Authorities raised the possibility that he nursed grudges against women. One poster wrote: "Spread that name, speak of his sacrifice for our cause, worship him for he gave his life for our future". Graham Gibson told a news conference that those killed and injured were "predominantly" women, though he declined to discuss a possible motive. A South Korean news agency said two unnamed Korean nationals were also among those killed.
Minassian admired Elliot Rodger, the 22-year-old misfit who killed six people at The University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014 before turning the gun on himself. The full post also says "the incel rebellion has already begun". We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys!' just before the attack.
Minassian (25) also wrote of an "incel rebellion", referring to a term, shorthand for "involuntary celibates", used online by a community of misogynists to describe themselves. It broadly refers to an internet community of men who blame women for not having sex and relationships with them.
Facebook has since deleted Minassian's account, a representative said.
Former classmates who knew Minassian at Thornlea Secondary School in Thornhill, a Toronto suburb, said he had displayed extreme social awkwardness.

"All the lanes are open with this investigation", said Police Chief Mark Saunders. "I said to him 'Did you wake up in cold sweats?' and he said 'I did.'" "And I said 'Do you wake up feeling anxiety?' and he said 'Yes, I did, ' and I knew that because I did too", he said.
