Police named a suspect Thursday in last week’s shooting on a crowded subway platform.

At a news conference yesterday, detectives said Curt John, 21, of no fixed address, is alleged to have fired three shots on Jan. 22 onto a busy subway platform just after the rush of morning commuters.


The suspect, who is also wanted for a litany of other charges, including accessory to a murder, is accused of sending a 19-year-old victim to hospital with bullet wounds to his thigh and abdomen.

This is the second shooting to occur on TTC property in the last year and only the second in TTC history. Last spring, a young woman was shot in the leg on a packed subway car as it headed into Spadina subway station.
