A daycare had to be placed into lockdown after Toronto Police received calls about a man with a gun Friday morning.

Investigators and Emergency Task Force officers descended on 100 York Gate Blvd, an apartment in the Jane Street and Finch Avenue area, at around 8:00a.m.

It is believed that the incident began as a domestic dispute, but a report of a gun prompted police to lock down the daycare centre on the main floor of the midrise apartment.  Gosford Public School and St. Charles Garnier Catholic Elementary school were also put in ‘hold and secure” mode for about 2 hours.

No injuries were reported as officers surrounded an apartment inside the building. 

Police say officers with the Emergency Task Force talked the man out of the apartment unit and placed him under arrest.

He was found with what authorities describe as a fake gun.

Paramedics took the man, who is said to be in his late 20's, from the building hundcuffed to a gurney and drove the man to hospital to be looked over by doctors.

Toronto Police say the man suffers with mental health issues and is booked for a psychiatric assessment.  He may be charged based on the opinion of the experts who handle his case.
