Police are investigating after shots fired at the police station in East York

Toronto police are investigating after shots were fired at a police station in East York on Friday night.

Around. At 8 p.m., officers inside the 55 Division Substation, located at 41 Cranfield Road, heard a window crack.

Officers inspected the building and believe the damage stemmed from shots that evidence was found at the scene, police said.

A large box of nails was also thrown at the property, according to police.

A light car was seen fleeing the scene in security camera footage, Const. David Hopkinson told CP24.

No suspicious information has been released.

Hopkinson said the incident is “strange” and appears to be targeted.

“I do not believe we have received any significant threats … I’m not sure exactly what the person’s motives are. It would be part of an investigation, but it appears to be targeted. There is not really much else in the area, “he said Saturday afternoon.

The station used to be the old location of 54 Division, but has since been merged with 55 Division.

“This is not a station that is open to the public. We have some investigation teams and some of our officers working out of that division,” Hopkinson said.
