Chess Player Wounded at Dawson College

From ChessTalk Message Board we heard that "One of the Dawson College (Montreal) shooting victims was Leslie Markofsky, 22, still in serious condition in hospital" - Hugh Brodie

"I remember Leslie and his twin sister. Either Leslie was one of my students in DDO, or he and his sister were campers at my summer camp in the Laurentians." - Jordan S.Berson

"Dave Ross and I taught Leslie for many years when he went to Westpark School in DDO. He was part of the team that won the Montreal K-6 Championship a couple of times." - IM Tom O'Donnell

Andrei Gulko, another chess player, is mentioning some "strange" things about the shooting.

Correction to my previous statement: Leslie and his sister were not twins. It has been many years since I had seen them, but Lauren Markofsky is roughly three years younger than Leslie.
