Peel Regional Police say there were “reports of someone with possible weapons at a plaza.”

Erindale Secondary School is located at the corner of Erin Mills Pkwy. and Dundas St. W.
Saint-Jean Baptiste Catholic Elementary School is located on Broad Hollow Gate, just northeast of the high school.
Hold-and-secure mode means the schools have been closed to visitors, but students can still move from class to class.
