Toronto Transit Shooting

February 27, 2012 by staff 

Toronto Transit Shooting, An intense manhunt is underway to nab a man who fired two shots at a Toronto transit ticket collector in cold blood, wounding him in the neck and shoulder at a subway station Sunday night.
Police are poring through video from Toronto Transit Commission security cameras as they try to find a suspect in connection with the brazen 7:20 p.m. shooting at the Dupont station.

The station was closed for several hours Sunday as canine units searched for clues.

Police said a man in a balaclava demanded cash from the collector. He then fired a shotgun that shattered the protective glass of the collector booth.

Cops said the suspect then made his getaway down a nearby street. It is not clear if money was taken.

Officers of the force’s hold-up squad are expected to release a photo of a suspect Tuesday.

Transit workers said the collector has been with the TTC for 10 years and is a popular employee.

In 1995, TTC collector Dimitrija “Jimmy” Trajceski was robbed and killed at the Chester subway station.
