The Regina Police Service (RPS) says a 13-year-old girl has been arrested after a report of a gun sent an east Regina high school into an hours-long lockdown Friday morning.
In an afternoon press conference, RPS Deputy Chief Lorilee Davies told reporters the teenager was arrested at a residence in an undisclosed Regina location away from F.W. Johnson Collegiate, and that an air soft rifle was recovered as well.
Police say the girl allegedly pointed the gun at a teacher before leaving school property, and that charges are coming though they have not yet been announced.
“I can tell you this is a very serious incident,” Davies said at RPS headquarters.
“There will be significant charges with significant consequences.”
