A lockdown at a Brampton high school has been lifted after police said a suspect in connection to a stabbing at St. Roch Catholic Secondary is not in the building.
Peel Regional Police Const. Fiona Thivierge said officers were called to the high school – located at 200 Valleyway Dr. – just before 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
According to police, a fight had broken out between two people inside the school.
A 17-year-old male student was taken to Brampton Civic Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, police said the school was placed under a temporary lock down and schools in the surrounding area were in a "hold and secure" mode while officers conducted an investigation.
Police said two male students – aged 16 and 17 – are "in custody for (the) stabbing."
A third suspect, a 16-year-old boy, is still being sought in connection with the stabbing, Thivierge said.
Peel Regional Police tweeted at around 2:30 p.m. the lockdown was lifted after a room-by-room search turned up nothing.
"We do know who that boy is, so it is just a matter of time until we find him," Thivierge told CP24.
