The Horizon College students and the Sports Academy Sports School building are confined within these establishments located in the Cap-de-la-Madeleine sector because of Police operation.
“As a safety measure, the Public Security has decided to keep all students inside the buildings,” said the Chemin-du-Roy school board in a communique. “All students are safe,” she said.
The police decided to take this action after a person at Horizon College received serious threats. However, according to Public Security, no armed men are wanted in the area.
The school team dined all students even those who had to eat at home.
Public Safety requires parents not to come to the scene. Despite this advice, several parents visited the site.
The policemen crisscross the area and intercept vehicles near these nearby schools. An important security perimeter has been built around the two schools.
More information will be available in the afternoon.
