UPDATE: Fort St. John RCMP have explained the cause of a hold and secure in three schools.

The RCMP say that yesterday at around 2:17 p.m they received a report of a man who may be in possession of a handgun on 86th street near one of the schools. Police responded, but learned the man had left the area in a green SUV. Officers were able to contact the 23-year-old man, and he agreed to turn himself in. Police say they  believe the alleged handgun is an airsoft pistol, and that there is no danger to the public.

Students at three schools in Fort St. John were under a hold and secure this afternoon, after the district received what it called a quote "credible threat".

Students at North Peace Secondary School, Robert Ogilvie and Duncan Cran were under the procedure, which was lifted after 3 p.m. School District 60 Superintendent Dave Sloan says students reported seeing a person carrying something they thought was dangerous. Sloan says the RCMP responded to the area and they told him the issue had been resolved.

CJDC TV reached out to the RCMP but they were unavailable for comment.
