In the aftermath of an armed assault on a teacher in the Saint-Michel district, another high school in Montreal is closing its doors today due to a threat received on social media. & nbsp;

“The investigators are already at the residence where the message comes from and checks are being made”, explains Jean-Pierre Brabant, spokesperson for the City Police Department of Montreal (SPVM). & nbsp; & nbsp;

“Yesterday evening, messages of concern were communicated to us, wrote Mullie Régis, director, to the staff this morning. This information has been transmitted to the City of Montreal Police Department, which is currently analyzing the situation. As a result, as a preventive measure, all classes are suspended for the day and you remain in telework. “& Nbsp;

A strong police presence is visible around the establishment located on rue de Boucherville, very close to boulevard Louis-H. The fountain, in the Anjou sector. The police also advise students who are unaware that classes are suspended for the day. & Nbsp; & nbsp;

The 16-year-old is due to appear in juvenile court today, where charges of attempted murder, assault with a weapon and carrying a weapon for a dangerous purpose could be laid against him. & Nbsp; & nbsp;
