Swiss Chalet Standoff

Swiss Chalet Standoff Terrance McBurnie
Yesterday, I happened to rollerblading near The Queensway and Kipling Avenue when I heard about the hostage situation at the intersection's Swiss Chalet. So, in my capacity as a pseudo-journalist for Torontoist, I decided to check out what was going on, and I happened to snag this photo (see above) of gunman Terrance McBurnie's arrest.

More photos after the break.
