Reports of person with firearm leads to lockdown on Sheridan campus


Sheridan College locked down and cancelled classes on Tuesday after reports of a suspect with a firearm on campus. The college was notified about the situation by the Halton Regional Police and instituted its active assailant procedure and provided those on campus with directions via its emergency response system and the Sheridan ALERT app. A canine unit reportedly tracked the suspect, who was taken into custody at around 3:30PM. The campus has since reopened and Sheridan has made counselling available to all students.
