A police marksman shot and killed a man holding a woman passerby at gunpoint in front of busy Union Station at the height of Wednesday's morning rush hour, leaving the hostage shaken but unharmed and the normally bustling area eerily quiet.

Canadian snipers have a good reputation. Looks like this one hit the "no reflex zone".

Excellent shot and call by the Tactical and rescue team, or is it the ETF ?
I can never remeber what Toronto calls their "swat".

Head shot by the ETF, it all started in the TD building with one lady getting shot ( she is ok by the way), it moved over to the Union Station where a ETF marksman took the guy out with a head shot.

Snipers don't just go for head shots...they shoot for very specific spots on the head where the target will immediately shut down and not have any chance of their muscular reflexes pulling the trigger ...

And that is ALL that needs to be said about THAT, agreed?

Holy ****, this is what I get for not tuning into CP24 when I wake up.

I have always been concerned about giving out info like that on a public forum.

Shum,

They were talking about it on every station. I heard about it on 102.1 Even they didn't have anything to say about it except "wow".

Kudos to our boys in blue on this one. I just hope this isn't a trend for here in Toronto.

Remember a few years ago, Younge and Bloor, same thing, same result.
Our ETF guys and T&R Guys, don't **** around.
