Gunmen open fire on Toronto Jewish girls school: police

Two suspects were caught on video shooting at the school, and they caused damage to the building. No injuries were reported.


Authorities told reporters on Saturday that two gunmen shot at Jewish elementary school in the early hours of the morning in Toronto. No injuries were reported but damage was done to the school.  

Video of the suspects shooting at the Bais Chaya Mushka Girls Elementary School of Toronto revealed the shots being fired in the early hours at around 5am, local time. 

Spokesman Insp. Paul Krawczyk for the Guns and Gangs Task Force confirmed that a gun was fired at the school and that damage was done to the building as a result. Two suspects are seen in the video in the dark shooting at the school and then run off.  

The suspects arrived at the school in a dark vehicle and approached the school where they then shot at the building, according to Krawczyk. After discharging the firearms, the suspects got back in the vehicle and drove off. The police asked for the community to help provide more assistance to gather evidence to identify suspects.  

Although motive was not determined and he said that it was too early to tell if it was driven by antisemitism, the spokesman said, "We're not going to ignore the obvious. What occurred here and what the target of the shooting was," referring to the Jewish elementary school. 

The Center for Israel and Jewish affairs responded to the incident with a statement that said, "The fact a school was targeted regardless of whether kids were present or not represents another worrying escalation in the violence Jewish Canadians have been experiencing." 

"We demand justice. We demand swift action," it added.
