Two years ago today, Torontonians were devastated by a shooting on the Danforth that left 18-year-old Reese Fallon and 10-year-old Juliana Kozis dead, 13 others injured, and a community in mourning.

While two years have passed, I am certain the memories are still vivid not just for those who were most impacted but also for the many first responders who rushed to the scene that day.

As Chief, I am proud of the Toronto Police Service members who attended the call, comforted victims, located the suspect, and worked diligently to investigate that unspeakable act of violence.

I am also proud of how this city responded and came together in the days and weeks after to show strength and support. May we continue to gather that strength and support as we take this moment to reflect on July 22, 2018.
