The Casa Loma campus of George Brown College in Toronto has been placed on lockdown after an incident involving a knife, officials say. All students are asked to stay where they are. (more)

The college said in an alert to students just after 11:10 a.m. on Wednesday that its Casa Loma campus had been placed on lockdown. "We continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as they become available," the college said.

The lockdown was prompted by reports of a man armed with a knife, and the college later confirmed that one victim had sustained a "very minor injury." It was not immediately known whether the victim is a student, staff or someone else.

"Police have identified the suspect at the Casa Loma campus," the college said. "Police are not releasing the lock-drown until they complete the sweep of the campus. All students and staff are asked to stay calm and stay in the classroom or the room that they are in. Please stay out of hallways and wait for further instructions."

Other details were not yet available.
