One person has been killed and seven others injured in a shooting at Toronto's main central shopping centre, Canadian police have said. Witnesses described scenes of panic after gunfire broke out in the food court of the Eaton Centre. "A herd of people were just running toward us, screaming, running, freaking out," said one shopper. Police said two of the injured were in a critical condition and warned that they were still hunting the shooter. A 13-year-old boy was among those seriously injured. Officials said a 25-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.
