School shooting threat under investigation in Fort Nelson

6/11/2018

Northern Rockies RCMP are investigating a threat about a school shooting in the form of graffiti.

Police received a tip about the threat last Wednesday before 2:45 in the afternoon.

The threat was written on a wall in Fort Nelson Secondary School regarding a school shooting that was set to take place on June 20th.

Police immediately responded and say they are working with the school district.

A letter was sent home to parents letting them know about the investigation.

There will be an increased police presence at the school to enhance safety.

RCMP say school threats are not taken lightly, and that uttering threats, verbally or in writing is a criminal code offence and will not be tolerated.

The investigation is ongoing and if any one has any information, then they're asked to contact the Northern Rockies RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

This isn't the first time a school shooting threat popped up in Fort Nelson. Graffiti was sprayed at R.L. Angus School in May.

Fort Nelson Seconday School saw another threat in February.
