Here's what it says on the EMS website
Dear Parent / Guardian,
I want to inform you of an incident that occurred at our school today just before dismissal that involved police. It was resolved quickly and safely and demonstrated how well school emergency protocols work.
Some students at the smoke pit behind our school reported to the office someone was seen showing-off what appeared to be a handgun. The students reported this promptly to our office and police were notified. Our school entered a “Code Red”, which is essentially a full lock-down so nobody could leave or enter the building.
Police quickly apprehended a suspect in the neighbourhood and our information is he had a pellet gun in his possession.
There was never a direct threat to the safety of our staff or students.
I am proud of the quick and proper response by the students, our staff and the RCMP.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school.
And Global TV's article
Thats the official report; now here's my story
I was sitting in school when my friend who goes to EMS texted me saying
"we have a code red at our school, somebody pulled a gun, there are 8 cop cars here"
"the swat team is here"
"oh and somebody got stabbed"
Turns out my friend was wayyyyyyy off.....
