Following a shooting at a high school in Toronto, a kid in grade 10 was taken by ambulance to the hospital with critical wounds.
Just after noon, a shooting occurred in a parking lot outside Weston Collegiate Institute.
Duty. According to Insp. Ryan Forde, the 15-year-old boy was shot in “the upper chest area” by a gang of males who approached him as he was leaving the school building.
He returned to the school after being shot and was attended to by faculty and teachers, Forde informed reporters. The sufferer was then taken to a nearby trauma center, where he is now receiving critical care.
Forde stated that investigators are currently scouring the neighborhood for “witnesses and camera evidence,” but they are unable to provide a description of the perpetrators or the suspect vehicle.
Given that lunch break had just started, he claimed several pupils were in the area when the shooting occurred. It’s unclear whether any of those youngsters actually saw the shooting.

“The suspect information at this time is just that unknown males drove by and obviously shot this gentleman. They made good on their escape in an unknown direction,” he said. “This is a residential area. So if there are any homeowners in the area who have either dash cam or residential camera footage that would be greatly appreciated.”
After roughly two hours, the lockdown was lifted
Weston Collegiate Institute went into lockdown as soon as the incident was over.
Nevertheless, shortly after 2 p.m., that order was rescinded, and kids were sent to two adjacent elementary schools to finish the day.
Ryan Bird, a Toronto District School Board spokesman, told reporters that staff members had spent the afternoon trying to “maintain as much of a sense of normalcy as possible.”
Yet he acknowledged that the occurrence will affect many people in the school community, particularly those who helped the youngster before paramedics arrived.

Officers from the Emergency Task Team cleared the school
Although Bird informed reporters that the school has a number of surveillance cameras both inside and outside, he could not say whether any of them are pointed at the parking lot where the shooting occurred.
He stated that although the Emergency Task Force had cleared the school, it would still be mainly off-limits while police conducted their investigation.
It’s uncertain how that will affect tomorrow’s start of classes.
Naturally, Bird added that we are considering the student who was hurt today. We are currently thinking of him, his family, his friends, and the faculty and students at the school.

The shooting is the most recent instance of violence at a GTA school in recent months.
Two persons were shot in front of Woburn Collegiate Institute in Scarborough in October, shortly after the day’s classes ended. Jefferson Peter Shardeley Guerrier, age 18, was one of them; he was later declared deceased.
A few weeks later, a student at Birchmount Park Collegiate, age 17, was stabbed inside the building and suffered life-threatening wounds.
Mayor John Tory called a meeting with police, municipal administration, and TDSB members to determine how to react to the recent violence.
