Montreal — The suspect has been detained after being stabbed in a high school in Montreal, where he sent a slightly injured teacher to a hospital.

According to Montreal police, the incident occurred today at John F. Kennedy High School in the Saint-Michel district at the northern end of the city around 10 am.
