Toronto police are condemning the apparent actions of two groups of teens who allegedly shot fireworks at each other and into vehicles in the city’s north end.

Const. David Hopkinson says someone called 911 on Monday night to report the alleged incident, but the teens had left by the time officers arrived.

He says nobody stepped forward to say they had been injured or that their property had been damaged, so officers did not pursue an investigation.

But a video that appears to show the incident was posted online Tuesday, and police are now asking anyone who was affected to come forward.

The video seems to show a group of people surrounding a white car as it exits a plaza parking lot, with one person pointing a firework at one of the windows and letting it go off.

Hopkinson says the alleged actions were extremely dangerous. He says shooting fireworks into a moving car is assault with a weapon, and also could have caused a serious crash.
