RCMP investigate shooting threat at Burnaby high school
Burnaby RCMP are increasing police presence at Burnaby South Secondary School in response to a threat made on social media.
A Snapchat post uploaded Monday warned there could be a shooting the next day, said Cpl. Daniela Panesar.
“We take all these complaints seriously. This is why we have responded,” said Panesar.
Police are not releasing any other details about the socialmedia post.
Panesar confirmed that police have increased patrols to Burnaby South Secondary and that officers are investigating the social-media post.
“Until we have located the person who made the comments, we have to continue to investigate it and be diligent and provide extra police presence.”
In a memo sent to families on Tuesday, Burnaby South principal Victoria Lee said the school is a safe learning environment and that students should still attend. RCMP are increasing police patrols at a local high school.
