Police say a female high school student is in custody after six people were injured this morning at a high school east of Toronto.

According to a report from the CBC, Durham Regional Police Sgt. Bill Calder says officers were called to Dunbarton High School in Pickering, Ont. at 8:32 a.m. in response to reports of a stabbing.

He later tweeted that one person suffered serious injuries while five more sustained minor injuries — none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening.

Calder says a female student, whose name and age have not been released, has been taken into custody and charges are pending.

He says the school remains in lockdown as police continue to investigate.
