Funerals held for Danforth shooting victims Julianna Kozis, Reese Fallon
PM Trudeau attended funeral of Fallon, 18, who along with Kozis, 10, were among 15 shot on Danforth Ave.
It was a sombre day in two suburban neighbourhoods where funerals were held for the two people killed in a shooting rampage last weekend on Toronto's Danforth Avenue.
Church bells echoed through Markham, a city north of Toronto, as a funeral procession carrying a small white casket pulled up at the St. Panteleimon Greek Orthodox Church on Warden Avenue.
Church singing will soon billow from the Greek Orthodox Church in Markham where the funeral service is happening for 10y/o Danforth shooting victim Julianna Kozis <a href="https://twitter.com/CBCToronto?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@CBCToronto</a> <a href="https://t.co/NYRuXYCoXZ">pic.twitter.com/NYRuXYCoXZ</a>—@Ali_Chiasson
A neighbour, Leslee Wells, described Julianna as "a very sweet little soul."
Not far away, in Scarborough, a mounted honour guard stood at attention as about 500 people, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Toronto Mayor John Tory, entered Reese Fallon's funeral.
"We wish our sweet angel eternal peace and light. We will never forget you for one moment," her family said in a statement released Saturday.
Hussain was found with a gunshot wound to his head after exchanging fire with police. A source revealed to CBC Toronto that he shot himself.
