Four students arrested after a loaded handgun found in Scarborough high school


Four students were arrested after police seized a loaded handgun at a Catholic high school in Scarborough on Wednesday.

Police were called to Blessed Mother Teresa High School near Mclevin Ave. and Neilson Rd. after receiving a Crimestoppers tip shortly after 1:45 p.m.

The school was under “lock and secure” during the incident, according to TCDSB spokesperson John Yan. No one was injured.

“Police searched the school and uncovered a loaded 357 revolver in a knapsack,” said Const. Tony Vella of the Toronto Police.

Three teenage boys and one teenage girl were taken into custody.

“We don’t know why the handgun was brought into the school. That’s the second part of the investigation.”
