Reese Fallon, 18, who recently graduated from high school and was preparing to study nursing at Hamilton's McMaster University in the fall, was also killed in the attack. The 13 injured include six women and girls, as well as seven men.

Toronto Mayor John Tory and some city councilors had lunch Wednesday at a Greek restaurant on the street.
