Three youth have been taken into custody after reports of a person with a firearm sent a Brampton school into lockdown on Thursday.
According to Peel Regional Police, a woman was reported to have been holding a firearm in the area of Elgin Drive and McMurchy Avenue in Brampton just after 12 p.m.
As a result, Brampton Centennial Secondary School was placed in lockdown and Bishop Francis Allen School was placed in a hold and secure.
Police say they took two female and one male youth(s) into custody following an investigation into the reports.
A replica firearm was also seized at a location near one of the schools.
The hold-and-secure and lockdown have since been lifted.
