The identities of the suspect and victim have not been made public, and it is unclear whether they knew each other.
Charlie Bouchard, superintendent of the Saint Thomas Aquinas Roman (STAR) Catholic School Division, which includes Christ the King, said the school community will feel the loss greatly.
“We cannot express deeply enough the sorrow we feel for the family members, friends, and staff members who have lost a loved one today, and whose lives will be forever changed,” Bouchard said in a statement.
Michelle Lamer, chair of the STAR Catholic Board of Trustees, voiced prayers and condolences.
“As one connected faith community, we ask that God grant strength to all those who are suffering, and pray they find solace and healing through Christ.”
