A lockdown has been lifted at a Scarborough high school after two people were reportedly stabbed during a fight on Wednesday.

Police said they received reports of a fight at David and Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute, near Lawrence Avenue East and Brimley Road. The fight reportedly continued later off school property and might have involved a hammer.

Police believe two people who turned up at hospital with stab wounds were injured in the fight. They are expected to survive.

Officers have finished their search of the school but continue to investigate.

Witnesses reported seeing a group of people fleeing in a car.
