Authorities in Toronto have named the young girl killed during a mass shooting in the Canadian city on Sunday night.
Julianna Kozis was from Markham, Ontario, police said, and her family has requested privacy while they grieve.
Markham mayor Frank Scarpitti said in a statement: "This heartbreaking story speaks to the unbreakable bond between a father and his daughter and I salute the Toronto paramedics, doctors and nurses who reportedly brought them together, showing incredible compassion and kindness in her final moments.
"This senseless act of violence has shaken us and hurt us.
"We stand with the victims, the brave first responders and all the communities impacted by this tragedy."
Julianna, 10, was killed along with 18-year-old student Reese Fallon during the shooting in Greektown.
Ms Fallon had recently graduated high school and was volunteering for Canada's Liberal party before starting university, where she was to train as a nurse.
One of her high school teachers, Anthony Parise, said Ms Fallon had planned to become a mental health nurse.
A further 13 people - seven males and six females - were injured.
Police have identified the man responsible as Faisal Hussain, 29, of Toronto.
Hussain, who is suspected of firing a handgun into restaurants and cafes, died after exchanging gunfire with police officers at the scene.
It is not clear whether he killed himself or whether he was shot by police.
The motive behind the shooting has not been established and police have said they will not speculate.
However, Hussain's family members said he had been mentally ill for much of his life.
Hussain's family said their son had a long history of psychosis and depression and had not responded to numerous treatment approaches, including therapy and medication.
They added: "Our hearts are in pieces for the victims and for our city as we all come to grips with this terrible tragedy. We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives."
Police searched the apartment that Hussain shared with his parents and siblings, removing boxes of potential evidence on Tuesday.
It is not known where he got the gun he used in the shooting - it is illegal in Canada to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon.
Canada also requires training, a personal risk assessment, two references, spousal notification and criminal record checks.
Mass shootings are rare in Toronto but gun violence has recently risen - there were 23 gun murders so far this year, compared to 16 in the first half of last year.
