London Police say a young male has been arrested and charges are pending in connection to an incident and lockdown Wednesday at the G.A. Wheable Centre for Adult Education.
Details are limited, but police say they were called to the Jacqueline Street school around 11:30 a.m. after a witness reported observing a man outside the building with what appeared to be a handgun. The witness, police say, heard what they believed was a gunshot.
The school was promptly placed on lockdown, and police conducted a search of the area for a male suspect.
Just after 1:30 p.m., police announced they had arrested a young male in connection to the incident and had recovered an imitation firearm.
The school is no longer on lockdown, police said.
Police say charges are pending and more information will be released later in the afternoon. No injuries have been reported or are suspected, police said.
