Delta Police say one male is in custody and a lockdown at Sands Secondary School has been lifted after police were called for a student who brought a starter pistol to school.
Police say the the situation started as a dispute between students.
“The student in question apparently felt threatened and decided to carry the starter pistol as a deterrent,” said Delta Police Public Affairs Coordinator Cris Leykauf in a release.
The lockdown, otherwise known as a”Code Yellow,” forbids activity outside the school or unnecessary movement between rooms within the school.
The incident remains under investigation.
