TORONTO — A Toronto police officer is in stable condition in hospital after being stabbed in the neck during an altercation that began during a routine traffic stop.
Insp. Peter Callaghan says shots were fired before the officer was wounded in the incident late Sunday in the city's north end (in the Bathurst-Wilson area).
"As a result of some interaction with a member of the public, there was an exchange of gunfire with an individual," said Callaghan.
