Systemically Racist Toronto Police...

...once again harassing unfortunate little child soldiers...
A 15-year-old boy is scheduled to appear in court today, accused of a daylight shooting that saw bullets fly across a busy northwest Toronto street.

Investigators allege the teen was walking along Sheppard Ave. W., just east of Jane St., when he made "derogatory gestures" toward a teenaged boy and two young men standing outside a Toronto Community Housing complex across the street just before 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Toronto Police Const. Wendy Drummond said today.

He is then accused of pulling out a gun and firing off six or seven shots toward the trio, across four lanes of traffic, striking an 18-year-old man in the leg, Drummond said.

The teen, who was already facing charges before the courts and can't be named because of his age, was arrested that evening on several charges, including attempted murder, aggravated assault, several gun-related charges and failing to comply with bail and the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
