Alek Minassian charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder, 13 counts of attempted murder

Alek Minassian has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder.

The Richmond Hill man is accused of driving onto the sidewalk with a rented van and ramming pedestrians along a two-kilometre stretch of Yonge St., between Sheppard Ave. and Finch Ave. on Monday afternoon. Ten people were killed, while another 15 still remain in hospital.

Minassian briefly appeared in court at 1000 Finch Ave. W., on Tuesday, handcuffed wearing a white jumpsuit in the prisoner’s box.

Minassian’s time in court was brief as he gave his name, witnesses say his face was expressionless the whole time.

Minassian’s next court appearance will be via video on May 10, according to reports he will need to find a lawyer to be given the seriousness of the charges, the justice of the peace told the court that he was required to detain the accused.

Minassian was ordered not to have contact with any of the 13 attempt murder victims and when asked if he understood, he sharply said, “Yes.”

It wasn’t clear if he had any family members in court.

Court records show he has no criminal record prior to these charges and the exact motive behind the attack remains unclear.

More to follow as the case unfolds.
