Police looking into possible prank shooting call
Toronto Police are investigating after a call for a shooting lead them to a home in Rosedale overnight.
The call came in just after midnight. When officers arrived at the home near Bloor Street East and Sherbourne Street, they found nothing.
Police are looking into whether the call was a prank and say it tied up valuable resources.
It follows a call earlier in the evening that, police say, tied up phone lines creating a, "public safety issue for those in REAL need of our help."
They say a man called to report that another man in a restaurant had failed to flush a toilet.
