RCMP Locate School Threat Suspect

John Crawford

Kitimat RCMP say a youth suspect has been located in connection with a Facebook post made this morning suggesting a threat to Mount Elizabeth Middle/Secondary School.

The detachment received information from the school of a post with a gun, knife and caption suggesting the person would be coming to Kitimat with the weapons.

The school, and Skeena Middle School in Terrace, were already being watched by RCMP from both communities, over concerns regarding a Facebook post made Sunday afternoon, allegedly by a former Mount Elizabeth student, which appeared to threaten both schools.

A release posted by the School District on its website says persons of interest are currently being questioned by the RCMP and school district staff.

The school district says it's working on arranging School Staff Sessions and Parent Information Evening Sessions facilitated by the RCMP and the "Safer Schools Together" program -- with scheduling depending upon the availability of these organizations representatives.
