Gun fired during robbery of a Toronto marijuana dispensary

Toronto police are investigating after a gun was fired during the robbery of a marijuana dispensary on Thursday night.

Police received a call for a robbery at Canna Clinic dispensary near Broadview Avenue and Gerrard Street East at 10:40 pm.

Police say three suspects with their faces covered walked into the business with a gun and stole a quantity of marijuana and cash.

A gun was discharged inside the store, but nobody was injured.

Police say the suspects were adult males in their 30s and ask anyone with information to call investigators at 55 division. 

Police say they have cleared the scene as of Friday morning.

This is the latest in a series of recent marijuana dispensary robberies in Toronto.

Earlier this year, Toronto police said these dispensaries are operating illegally and while they would not withhold services from dispensary staff, they would seize any illegal narcotics found on a premises during a robbery investigation.
