Transit riders were breathing a sigh of relief last night after no one was hurt by shots fired on the bus bay platforms of Coxwell subway station.

Police spent most of rush hour investigating a mysterious shooting at Coxwell subway station that left no bullet holes or victims.

“There were about eight to 10 people outside the station at the time, but there were quite a few people inside because it was rush hour,” Toronto Police Sgt. Paul Jones said.

A single shot was fired outside the station’s entrance on Strathmore Avenue around 6 p.m. after what police suspect was an attempted robbery between two men.

Investigators on scene found one shell casing, but no evidence of what or who the bullet struck, said Staff Sgt. David Vickers.

There is no broken glass or evidence the intended victim has suffered any injuries, but bullet fragments were found on the sidewalk.

Police believe the suspect fled from the scene in a car and the intended victim ran into the station.
There are also reports that the suspects drove away in a black Volkswagen Jetta.

The station was cordoned off and subway service between Greenwood and Woodbine station was suspended for a few hours as shuttle buses ran along that stretch of the Danforth.
