A 17-year-old male is in life-threatening condition following a multiple stabbing at a nearby Scarborough high school on Friday afternoon.

Police initially said at least four people were stabbed after an altercation broke out among a group of young men at a plaza in the area of Lawrence Avenue and Rushley Drive, near Brimley Road just after 3:30 p.m.

They later revised the number of victims to three late Friday afternoon.

One of the victims retreated to David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute, which is located across the street from the plaza. That forced a brief hold-and-secure at the school.

At least one student from the school, a 17-year-old, was a victim of the stabbing, according to the Toronto District School Board.

Police say they are looking for two male suspects but have not released any descriptions. They also didn’t immediately have any indication what led to the stabbings.
