As many as seven people were hauled away by Toronto police, according to CBC News. Traffic on Spadina Avenue between College Street and Dundas Street has re-opened in both directions after being closed earlier.
Toronto police’s Emergency Task Force were called to the scene over a report from a “very credible witness” of a man spotted with a rifle in the area, according to CP24.
Nearby resident Stephanie Broschart tweeted a photo of a SWAT team member stationed on her balcony.
Police have yet to confirm several reports of a gunman spotted on a roof. Details of the SWAT operation also have not been released.
