The Toronto Transit Commission is offering a reward of $25,000 for information about the shooting of a ticket collector in February.

The collector was shot on Feb. 26, during an attempt to rob the fare booth at the Dupont station.

The suspect was leaving the station after failing to rob the booth, when for some unknown reason he turned back toward the booth and fired three shots.

The TTC employee was hit twice.  He was rushed to St. Michael's Hospital with life-threatening injuries. 

The employee is continuing to recover from his injuries and is still off work.

Closed circuit TV cameras captured images of the attack but police have not made an arrest.

"We want this individual caught," said TTC CEO Andy Byford in a statement announcing the reward.

"This reward may be the necessary incentive someone needs to help police make an arrest," he said.
