Subway Down & Shuttles Soaring After Spadina Station Shoot-Out
Just stepping in after a long trek home tonight featuring police tape, shuttle buses and service delays after an all out shoot-out broke out on the subway at Spadina Station.
Holding back on profanity I feel compelled to hurl at the individuals who decided to make a subway car their personal battleground, I'll just share what's being reported right now.
Frequent, packed, shuttle buses are running between St. George & St Clair West station along Spadina & Bathurst St at this hour. CityNews is reporting that "Heavy gunfire erupted on a subway train just after 8pm." No one was killed but a woman was hit in the leg. City is also reporting that one of the suspects is, "a black male in his late teens or early 20s. He's 5'8, with a medium build, wearing a black baseball cap with a jean jacket and jeans."
If you have any information, call Police, post your comments here, and/or speak up.
Update: The National Post is adding a report that this all started with an argument between a two teenaged girls and three teenaged boys who boarded the train at the same time. Out came a knife, then a gun, then a girl in the hospital with, thankfully, non life-threatening injuries. More on that from the Post.
Update 2: The Star checks in with more witness statements.
