Five people have been injured in a knife fight that took place at a Mississauga high school Wednesday morning.
Two male students have been rushed to Credit Valley Hospital with “severe” stab wounds, according to Brad Bowie with Peel EMS.
A female teacher at St. Joseph’s Secondary School was among the injured. She suffered minor injuries when she tried to break up the fight and was not transported to hospital.
Bowie said he does not know the condition of the other two students who were injured in the melee.
Police in Peel region were called to the school, located on Creditview Road near Eglinton Avenue, just before 8:30 a.m.
Two people have been taken in for questioning but it is unclear if they are students at the school.
The school was put under lockdown for about an hour. Administrators are now sending students home and closing the school for the day as a result of the police investigation.
