A Christie Pits school is on lockdown after Toronto police received a call there is a man with a gun inside.
Reports came in at 2:43 p.m. at West End Alternative School on Bloor St. W. near Christie St., police said.
Police are on scene searching for the suspect, and said no injuries have been reported.
The lockdown was ordered before the end of the school day, meaning students and faculty are still inside, TDSB spokesperson Ryan Bird said, adding he can’t confirm how many students are inside.
Under lockdown, students and teachers are locked into classrooms, the windows are shut and no one is allowed to roam freely within the building, according to police.
More to come.
