Fear and chaos was the feeling at the Choiseul Secondary School on Wednesday, May 12th, 2021, when a male wielding a cutlass entered the school compound.
An eye witness stated that the intruder was the brother of a female student who had been attacked by a male student and he had entered the compound in search of that student.

School security and teachers were able to intervene before the situation escalated.
The eye witness stated that staff and students were traumatized and crying and screaming could be heard on the school compound.
No injuries were reported and police have confirmed that the intruder is in custody.
