The victim was found near Central Peel Secondary School, but a police spokesperson couldn’t confirm whether or not he was a student at the school.

The spokesperson said he wasn’t found on school property and added that students weren’t in class at the time; only staff were in the building because of the new learning models amid the pandemic. The school was placed in hold and secure but it has since been lifted.
