Stettler RCMP investigate alleged school threats

A concerned parent reported there might be a shooting at the Wm E. Hay Stettler Secondary Campus

The RCMP have 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 Dec. 20th, at 10:34 a.m., the RCMP 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 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 two involved males attended the Stettler RCMP Detachment on their accord, where they are currently being detained by the RCMP.

The lockdown at the school was lifted shortly after noon.

The investigation into this complaint remains underway by the RCMP. It has not been determined that this was a credible threat.

Any concern relating to safety at school is always treated as a real threat until proven otherwise.

A further update is not anticipated today.
