Witnesses say that a man dressed in black opened fire in Greektown on Danforth, a popular area of the city full of restaurants and stores, at around 10pm on Sunday evening.
Between 15 and 20 gunshots were heard.
Police have confirmed that the shooter was killed in a police shootout.
A cellphone video, which appears to have been shot by someone in an apartment above the street, appeared to capture the shooter, in a black hoodie, walking down the street. Suddenly he turned as he passed by what appeared to be a store or restaurant front, whipped out his gun and opened fire.
Three gunshots were heard before the person filming quickly pulled back in and stopped the video.
The gunman, who was armed with a handgun, hit at least 14 victims, killing a young woman. The woman died in hospital after succumbing to her injuries.
Several other victims reportedly suffered ‘significant injuries’.
A young girl, 9, was taken to a pediatric trauma center and is in a critical condition, police said.
While six of his victims were rushed to a trauma center. At least two others were taken to hospital.
