Peel police say they have resolved a “scary clown” incident at a Mississauga Public School.
Earlier this week, threats, using the “killer clown” theme, were made to students at Lisgar Middle School via social media, although no specific student was targeted.
A couple of days later, an 11 year old student of the school was identified as being responsible for the incident.
