A person with a gun was reported to the Toronto Police this evening on the corner of King Street East and Victoria Street. Units were dispatched immediately.

The police on the scene located the man in question and were no doubt surprised and relieved with what they discovered. According to the Toronto Police Twitter feed, the man was not carrying a gun. It was a banana.

We were happy to see that it wasn’t a gun.

The response on social media is just beginning to blow up, with one Twitter user asking, “How can someone mistake a banana for a gun? Lol, poor guy.”

Another asked, “When you arrived, did he ‘split’?”
