Student charged over threat
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.
