Toronto police are asking the public to help identify a man who claimed in an online chatroom that he plans to commit a school shooting.
The man made the claim in a conversation with another man in the chatroom, stating that he is in possession of a firearm. The claim was made on the afternoon of Friday, October 16th.
While the man indicated that he was in Toronto, he did not say which school he planned to attack. The man is yet to be identified "despite extensive investigative efforts" by Toronto police.
According to the police, "steps were taken to ensure the safety of potentially targeted schools and officers started an investigation into identifying and locating the man from the online chat."
The suspect, a white male, was seen on video wearing a black baseball cap, a black shirt, a necklace, and large glasses. The man has tattoos on his face and neck.
While the legitimacy of the threat has not been corroborated, police still ask that anyone who sees the man call 9-1-1 immediately. The police also said that anybody "with information about his identity or location is asked to contact police at 416-808-1100, [or] Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477)."
