Edmonton Journal - - CITY -

Moun­ties have charged a stu­dent af­ter a threat was posted on a so­cial me­dia site about car­ry­ing out an act of vi­o­lence at an Ed­mon­ton-area school. Po­lice said they re­ceived a re­port early Wed­nes­day that a stu­dent at Spruce Grove Com­pos­ite High School sent the threat in a Snapchat photo and mes­sage. School staff safely se­cured the stu­dent be­fore RCMP ar­rived. The stu­dent, who can’t be named due to pro­vi­sions of the Youth Crim­i­nal Jus­tice Act, was taken into cus­tody with­out in­ci­dent. Po­lice said no one was in­jured and no stu­dents or staff were in any dan­ger. RCMP said the threats in­volved an air soft gun that was in the Snapchat photo.
