Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) yesterday placed a Whitby school under lockdown after reports of an armed “distraught” student.
Members from DRPS Central West Division have a distraught student in custody after an armed person call at Anderson Collegiate Vocational Institute just after 10am, said a police tweet.
“School was placed in a lockdown. No safety concerns at this time. No physical injuries,” it added.
Durham District School Board (DDSB) also tweeted that it had received reports of an individual with a knife this morning at Anderson CVI.
“The school was immediately placed into lockdown. DRPS is on site and the individual is in custody. There are no safety concerns at this time and no physical injuries,” said the tweet.
It also announced that the lockdown had been lifted.
