A man has been taken into custody after holding a woman hostage at the Calgary school he used to attend. According to police, the secretary of A.E. Cross School, “a woman in her mid-’40s,” was taken hostage in an office by a 25 year-old man who used to be a student at the school, and was demanding to see the principal about an injury he supposedly suffered when he attended the school. There was one other person in the office, a 13 year-old boy who currently attends the school; he managed to call the police and take refuge in an interior office, without being seen by the hostage-taker.
