Lockdown lifted at Brampton, Ont. high school after reports of student fight, one youth in custody

Peel police

A high school in Brampton was placed under a lockdown order for most of Monday morning after reports of a fight which may have involved a weapon.

Peel Regional Police said they received a call about a fight at a school in the area Williams Parkway and Bramalea Road shortly after 8:30 a.m.

Police said there were reports a gun or knife may have been seen, but that was not confirmed.

As a result, Chinguacousy Secondary School was placed in lockdown.

The school said the move was a "precautionary measure."

Several other schools were also placed under a hold-and-secure order for several hours as a precaution as police investigated the incident. They included Judith Nyman PSS, Williams Parkway PES, Jefferson PES and St. John Bosco CES.

Shortly before 11 a.m., police said that the hold-and-secure orders had been lifted. The lockdown at Chinguacousy Secondary School was then lifted at around 11:20 a.m.

Police say that one male youth has been taken into custody in connection with the investigation.

It is not clear what charges, if any, that individual will face.
