Police investigate weapons incident at Calgary junior high school
Calgary police are investigating reports of an armed individual who was spotted near a high school on Friday afternoon.
Officials tell CTV News officers were called to A.E. Cross School, on 37 Street S.W., at about 2 p.m. for reports of an unknown man waving what appeared to be a handgun.
According to witness reports and a police release issued Friday evening, the male pointed it at a number of students as they left the building and tried to steal a cell phone.
No shots were fired and no one was injured, police say.
The suspect fled on foot before officers arrived.
The suspect was described as a male between 15 and 18 years old who was about 1.82 metres (six feet) tall with a slim build. He was wearing a red, white and blue Champion brand windbreaker, grey pants and had a white bandage or cast on one arm.
