The two victims who were injured in the shooting at York University in February spoke out about their ordeal today.
They and six other victims are suing the school for $20.5 million dollars in damages. Shooting victim Annie Malik says she was shot in the leg and has difficulty walking. She says she doesn’t know when, or if, it will properly heal.
Malik says her injuries have also taken a toll on her mother. “To see her get up every time to give me a glass of water when she needs me to do that for her, it really frustrates me because I don’t do drugs, I don’t hang out with the wrong crowd, and this happened to me. And i’m, in a way, useless for now.”
Toronto Police identified Kemon Edwards, 22, as the shooter. He faces multiple charges including discharging a firearm and aggravated assault.
