StarMetro Vancouver - - VANCOUVER - WANYEE LI

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.
