Peel Regional Police Chief Jennifer Evans at a Friday morning news conference said, “There’s no indication this is a terrorist attack. There’s no indication this is a hate crime.At this time, we haven’t ruled anything out as we start our investigation.”
Police said that the suspects walked into the restaurant in Mississauga around 10:30 p.m., and detonated the device, then fled.
Surveillance photos show them wearing jeans and dark-colored hoodies. One had his face covered with a black cloth, police said.
Three people suffered critical injuries among 15 injured and were taken to a Toronto trauma center, officials said.
Their injuries were “consistent with those of an explosion,” said Brian Gibson, deputy chief at Peel Regional Paramedic Services.
