SURREY (NEWS 1130) – The doors of North Surrey Secondary were locked for a little over an hour this afternoon — as precaution — as RCMP dealt with a weapons call in the neighbourhood near 160th Street near 96th Avenue.

Mounties were dealing with a “weapons call” at a nearby home.

Doug Strachan with the Surrey School District stresses the incident had nothing to do with the school itself.

“Police are in the area around the school and, as a precaution, have asked the school to go into a lock out, which means our exterior doors are unlocked,” he told us earlier today.

RCMP now say the weapons report turned out to be “unconfirmed.”

Locking the doors of a school is a standard protocol during weapons calls near schools.
