After conducting a room-by-room search of Killarney Secondary School, Vancouver Police have not located a suspect who was reported to be holding a weapon inside the school.
In a Tweet, Vancouver Police said there were no injuries and the lockdown has now ended. Officers continue to investigate the incident.
The incident comes just one day after two teenagers entered the school and set off bear mace inside, forcing the evacuation of approximately 2,000 students. The teenagers do not attend Killarney and intended to assault a male student inside. After deploying the bear spray the teens fled in a vehicle.
Several staff and students were “contaminated” by the bear spray and were attended to by paramedics on scene. A number of students were taken to hospital as a precaution.
Vancouver police have identified the suspects in the bear mace incident and the investigation is ongoing.
