Laval police say three people were sent to hospital Friday evening after a shooting occurred at a park outside of Collège Montmorency in Laval, Que., north of Montreal.
Authorities say they received a 911 call at 5:22 p.m. and found the three victims seeking refuge inside the CEGEP. Police Sgt. Genevieve Major says the CEGEP was locked down as a precaution.
All three victims were sent to hospital, but officials say there is no fear for their lives.
No arrests have been made and police are searching for at least one suspect who is still at large as of Friday evening.
This comes after a different incident led to a previous lockdown at a Quebec college in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu earlier in the day Friday. It involved the arrest of a 19-year-old wearing a bulletproof vest on campus. There were no injuries and police say there is no connection between the two events.
