Langley Secondary School Locked Down After Gun Report

Police have ended a lockdown at Langley Secondary School, east of Vancouver, about two hours after it began.

The lockdown began at 10:50 a.m. PT Monday following an anonymous report of a firearm at the school.

"Based on the information received when the report of a firearm was called in anonymously, police responded with an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of all staff and students," said Cpl. Holly Marks in a statement issued by the RCMP.

"Police searched carefully and did not located any weapons or dangerous items during the lockdown."

There were no reports of any arrests, injuries or direct threats to students or staff members.

"Our thanks to the media, who helped us get out accurate information, and to the parents for their patience during this stressful event," said Marks.

"We're happy we could wrap this up quickly, and that the students and staff were safe."

In November, one student was arrested and the school was locked down for several hours after a student brought a fake handgun to class.
