Several buildings in the downtown Toronto core, including university and hospital facilities have been temporarily closed down while police investigate reports of a suspicious person seen on campus.

According to a report in the National Post:

Sick Kids Hospital was in lockdown and the University of Toronto shuttered its downtown campus on Monday morning as police investigated reports of a “suspicious person” with a gun.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said several people on campus reported seeing a “suspicious person” dressed in black, with a “surgical type” mask and a knapsack on campus. One 911 caller said the person had a gun, though police have yet to confirm that report. A witness photo of the person does not show he had a gun, Saunders said.
