UPDATE: The precautionary lockdown at R.E. Mountain Secondary School has been lifted.
The lockdown was put in place earlier this morning after someone called police to report they’d seen a man with a gun across from the school on 202nd Street.
A number of RCMP cruisers were dispatched, and police quickly arrested a suspect.
Ken Hoff with the Langley School District confirmed the school was put under a lockdown while police searched for any weapon and worked to confirm the suspect was the same person seen by the complainant.
“We did have a lockdown at R.E. Mountain Secondary School today. The School District is co-operating with the RCMP.”
No one was hurt.
