Coming on the heels of an April 23rd terror attack in Toronto, Canada,  in which ten people were killed and sixteen were injured by a misogynist who was targeting women with his car, this hit-and-run attack sparked instantly sparked concern over a copy-cat attack.

The man in Toronto identified as an “incel,” which stands for “involuntarily celibate.” Incels  are a group of largely heterosexual men (though homosexual men identify as incels as well) who blame potential sexual partners whom reject them for their own celibacy, hence “involuntary.”

There has yet to be a motive established, nor was the suspect apprehended nor their gender expression identified. Still, local agencies are offering emotional support to anyone affected by the tragedy, indicating a possible concern over a targeted attack.

This story has been updated to include information about the car suspect in the attack. More details will be added as they become available.
