Firgrove Public School has been placed in lockdown after police say someone “brazenly” fired a gun just outside.
Toronto police said they received reports just after 3 p.m. that a male was either shot or shot at outside the school. It’s unknown whether the potential victim was a student, police spokesperson David Hopkinson said.
Officers are in the area looking for any potential victims and suspects.
“We’re only a few minutes from where somebody brazenly shot or shot at another person right in front of a school,” Hopkinson said.
The suspect may have fled in a white or silver SUV or minivan, Hopkinson said.
