It happened around 2:30am Saturday near Victoria Park and Finch avenues.

The targeted policeman had been in the area with other officers conducting a break-and-enter investigation. As he was walking back to his vehicle, three men approached. He identified himself as a police officer, at which point one of the suspects allegedly pulled out a gun and fired, narrowly missing the officer.
