A 31-year veteran Toronto police officer has been killed while responding to a call at Toronto City Hall, police have confirmed.

Constable Jeffrey Northrup, a plainclothes officer with 52 Division, died after being run down by a suspect in a vehicle in the city hall underground parking garage, Police Chief James Ramer said at a 9 a.m. press conference, joined by Toronto Mayor John Tory and Toronto Police Association President Jon Reid.




Sometime around midnight, officers were dispatched to a priority robbery call in the garage, Ramer said — a call that was subsequently upgraded to a stabbing.
Northrup and his partner, both in plainclothes and attached to the ongoing response to the Canada Day events at City Hall, responded to the dispatch and were the first to arrive at the scene.
Both officers were wearing their badges identifying themselves as police offices, Ramer said.

While details are still scarce, the suspect entered a vehicle when confronted by the officers and allegedly drove at them.
“It’s very early on in the investigation, but based on the evidence we have at this time … it was a deliberate and intentional act,” Ramer said.
Northrup was treated at the scene by fellow officers and Toronto firefighters before paramedics rushed him to hospital via emergency run where he was pronounced dead.
Northrup’s partner was also transported to hospital, where she was treated and released for minor injuries.

Northrup began his career with court services, becoming a sworn police officer in 1999 assigned to 11 Division.
He’d been a member of 52 Division since 2008, and is a member of the chief’s ceremonial unit.

Ramer and 52 Unit Commander Supt. Greg Cole attended Northrup’s family home Friday morning to deliver the devastating news to his wife, three children and mother.

The case is being handled by the TPS Homicide squad, and Ramer said a suspect is in custody.

He’s expected to be named once his charges are sworn later today.











An emotional Ramer recalled speaking with Northrup’s mother Friday morning, who told him her son died doing what he loved.

“He loved his job,” Ramer said.

“Despite the dangers that we occasionally face, he continued to do that job to the best of his ability, and despite 31 years on the job he was eager to do that.”

Toronto Police Association President Jon Reid said the TPS family is devastated by Northrup’s death, describing it as a “senseless act of violence.”

“This only goes to highlight the risks that our officers take every day, here in Toronto and across the province and across this country,” he told reporters.

“The people understand the risks these men and women take every day,”

There hasn’t been a line of duty death of a Toronto police office since Dec. 2013, when Const. John Zivcic — a member of the 22 Division traffic unit — was killed in a collision at Bloor St. W. and Neilson Dr. in Etobicoke while responding to an impaired driver call.
Condolences poured in Friday morning.
