For the second time in less than a week, Waterloo Regional Police say a threatening message about a school shooting has been found at a Kitchener high school.

Cameron Heights Collegiate Institute at Charles Street and Stirling Avenue was placed under a hold and secure Tuesday morning after a student found the message on a stall in the girls’ washroom.

“School shooting today — at 9:50 a.m. Cancel school today. Come tomorrow. Watch out b****es,” the message read.

This is the second similar incident to happen in Kitchener in just under a week after a threatening message was found on a washroom stall at Huron Heights Secondary School last Wednesday.

No arrests have been made in either incident.

The hold and secure was lifted at Cameron Heights just before noon on Tuesday, but police said officers will remain on scene throughout the day to monitor and continue to investigate the threatening message.

“In our current climate, it is unacceptable and morally abhorrent to make threats towards members of the school community,” said Cameron Heights principal, Ray Teed, in a statement posted to the school’s website.

“Threats are never a joke. We take any intimidation of threat of violence seriously and the authors of these threats will be held accountable.”

Teed said students can confidentially report any information to any teacher, administrator, police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
