Langley RCMP worked to process kids out of H. D. Stafford Middle School in Langley Tuesday afternoon after a brief lockdown earlier in the day.
Sergeant Alexandra Mulvihill says some students started receiving threats through social media just after 1 p.m.
“The threat was coming from a student who does not attend H.D. Stafford. It was a threat to do physical harm to students at H.D. Stafford, there was no one student identified to my understanding, and it was a generalized threat.”
.@LangleyRCMP says its working to identify the person who sent threats to students at HD Stafford.

Mulvihill says Mounties searched the school but did not find the student who made the threats.
She adds the threats did not involve firearms.
Mounties are working to identify the students, it’s not known what school he attends.
