Toronto police are looking for a suspect after an armed man fired shots at a police station.
Toronto Police responded to a call about shots fired at the force’s 55 division substation last Friday at. 20.05
Officers reported that a man scattered sharp objects in the parking lot before firing shots at the building. No one was injured.
Art. Dave Hopkinson said he can not remember a previous incident in which someone fired shots at a police station in Toronto.
“I’ve never heard of it. It’s pretty disturbing. I worked at that station and know people who work there,” Hopkinson added.
Investigators are also looking for the same suspect in another incident – about 90 minutes after the shooting at the police station – in which shots were fired at a home on Eglinton Ave.-Caledonia Rd. area, smashing windows at the residence.
“It is always disturbing when shots are fired at a home. It’s nerve-wracking for society, ”Hopkinson said.
In both cases, a silver-colored or light, four-door Volvo sedan – with a sunroof and seven-spoke silver rims – was seen in the area.
“This incident is affecting not only officers in that department, but across the city,” Police Chief James Ramer said in a statement. “Fortunately, no one was injured. We will investigate and ensure that the person responsible is held accountable for their actions.”
These investigations are ongoing.
