Toronto city councillor John Filion says multiple gunshots were fired into his car and home early Thursday morning.
Toronto police said officers responded to a shooting call at Willowdale and Empress avenues at around 1:40 a.m.
In a statement, Filion said several bullets were shot into his parked car and another bullet went into a wall in his home.
Police said no one was injured and that the investigation is ongoing.
“This follows an incident three weeks ago in which a man with a weapon attempted unsuccessfully to force his way into my home.”
Filion said he suspects he was targeted in relation to his work as a city councillor.
“Both incidents were reported to Toronto Police at the time they occurred, and I am confident that Toronto Police Service is now conducting a thorough investigation.”
Mayor John Tory said he was “troubled” to learn of the incidents in a Tweet Thursday afternoon.
Filion is the councillor for Willowdale – Ward 18.
