The mayor is urging witnesses to the shooting at Osgoode subway station this morning to contact police.
"Like all Torontonians, I was shocked and alarmed by the events that took place today at Osgoode Station. It is most fortunate nobody was killed," said the mayor in a prepared statement released by his office at 3:30 this afternoon while he's in Los Angeles promoting Toronto's film and television industry.
"Toronto is, by any standard, the safest large city in North America and the TTC is a safe public transit system," the mayor's statement goes on to say. "But incidents like this remind us that we must remain vigilant when it comes to public safety."
No small feat in this city, when most of the shootings we see are gang-related and, as such, usually come with reprisals attached for anyone who does come forward.
The victim of this morning's shooting, which took place shortly after the morning rush and sent commuters in a panic, is reportedly cooperating with police. His injuries are not life-threatening.
According to a spokesperson in TTC chair Adam Giambrone's office, transit officials are preparping to share with police images captured on security cameras at the entrance, exit and platform of the station.
Service has resumed on the University line, but is bypassing Osgoode station, where police investigation continues.
