One man is in custody following a shooting incident that forced two Hamilton schools into a hold and secure.
A heavy police presence responded to the area of Cannon Street East and Wentworth Street North just before 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say officers with the Emergency Response Unit, with the assistance of the K9 unit, arrested the man after a short foot chase and recovered a firearm.
Police say Cathedral High School and Cathy Wever (wee-ver) Elementary School were placed in a hold and secure — which were lifted about 90 minutes later.
Police say no one was hurt and they are continuing to investigate.
