Cégep de Baie-Comeau locked down following online threats

May 16, 2019

A 42-year-old man has been arrested at his home after he made threats and disturbing remarks about Cégep de Baie-Comeau on social media. The CEGEP was locked down in response to the threats as police established a large security perimeter around the institution’s campus. The Journal de Montréalreports that containment measures were gradually lifted in the afternoon, but adds that a police deployment remained on site. CPE Les Petits Bécots and Serge-Bouchard High School, both located near the CEGEP, were also locked down as a safety precaution. Journal de Montréal TVA Nouvelles (QC)
