Toronto police are looking for two suspects wanted in connection with the stabbing of two students at an Etobicoke high school.

Emergency crews were called to Burnhamthorpe Collegiate Institute and Adult Learning Centre, near The East Mall and Burnhamthorpe Road, just after 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Police said teachers came out to assist the victims while emergency crews responded to the scene.

Paramedics said an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old were in hospital in stable condition.

Toronto police updated the media later in the afternoon and said an altercation occurred at a bus shelter by the school involving students.
