Gunfire erupted on a busy Toronto street filled with holiday shoppers, killing a young woman and wounding six others, police said - the latest in a record surge in gun violence in the city this year. Two suspects were arrested and at least one firearm was seized shortly after the shootings, which occurred Monday afternoon near the popular Eaton Centre shopping mall. The busy downtown area, popular with tourists, was also the site of two other shootings this year. There have been 78 murders in Toronto this year, including a record 52 gun-related deaths - twice as many as last year. The rash of recent guns deaths in Toronto prompted Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin to announce earlier this month that his government would ban handguns if he were re-elected in the January 23 elections.
