Stettler RCMP investigate alleged school threats from last December

It has been determined this complaint originated as a result of rumour and misinformation

The RCMP have extensively investigated the alleged school threats from Dec. 20th.

It has been determined that this complaint originated as a result of rumour and misinformation, noted a release. There is no first hand, credible, information to link the two males identified as being involved directly to any threatening comments.

The Stettler RCMP encourages any people who hear concerning information to report it immediately to the appropriate authorities. This allows the opportunity for an immediate and thorough investigation before the possibility of rumours and misinformation being spread.

On Dec. 20th, RCMP had two males in custody following a report from a concerned parent that there might be a shooting at the Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus.

On that morning, the RCMP had received a complaint from a parent who relayed information that the day prior, two students were overhead talking about shooting up the school. The RCMP responded to the school and collaborated with the school administration.

A lock down was then implemented at three schools; the Wm. E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus, Stettler Elementary School and Christ King Catholic School while the RCMP made efforts to locate the two males.

The lockdown at the school was lifted shortly after noon.
