September 16, 2022  By The Canadian Press

Sept. 14, 2022, Toronto, Ont. – Toronto police say books of condolence are being made available to allow the public to pay respects to an officer who was shot dead earlier this week.

Const. Andrew Hong was one of two people killed Monday in a series of shootings across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.

Toronto police say members of the public who want to offer condolences to Hong’s family and colleagues can visit its headquarters and its traffic services building, or share their thoughts on its website.

Hong was a 22-year veteran of the Toronto police force, having spent the past 19 years with traffic services where he worked with a highly specialized motorcycle unit that provides security escorts for dignitaries like prime ministers and presidents.
