Hamilton Mountain school under hold and secure order as police respond to ‘external threat’

UPDATE: Hold and secure has been lifted.
Police have placed a Hamilton Mountain school under a hold and secure order Tuesday (Feb. 23) morning for an investigation.
In a Tweet sent shortly before 11 a.m. Hamilton Police said Hill Park Learning Centre has been locked down as they are in the area addressing an incident.
It appears the hold and secure order was issued out of an abundance of caution as police have tweeted that the “threat is external and the students and staff are safe.”
The Hold & Secure has been lifted at Hill Park Learning Centre @HWDSB. The investigation is concluded. The school was placed in H & S as a precautionary measure. Thank-you #HamOnt for your patience. https://t.co/ncLYnDCMJ4
