File # 2017-43544

Langley RCMP responded to Brookswood Secondary School this afternoon shortly after 2:00 p.m. for a report of a male in the east field possibly in possession of a firearm.

Initial reports were not firsthand so the school was immediately locked down out of an abundance of caution. Many Langley officers attended the school, established a perimeter and began searching the area.

Police are now entering the school to complete a fulsome search. This is expected to take some time and students will be released from the school intermittently during the search.

Superintendent Murray POWER, Officer in Charge Langley Detachment, At this point in time, there is no evidence to indicate an armed individual entered the school and there have been no reports of injuries or violent acts.
