Students at Campbell Collegiate were put under a hold and secure for an hour Tuesday afternoon after police found a cache of firearms in the area.
Regina police were investigating two shootings on south Albert Street that happened Sunday night, and after speaking to one person, officers found several weapons stashed in an easement. Due to the proximity of the weapons, the school was put into a secure mode just after 2 p.m. Officers searched the building to locate people of interest in the case.
“We’re not 100 per cent sure that (the firearms are) affiliated with the events recently, but they’re in very close proximity to the area that these events occurred,” said Regina Deputy Police Chief Dean Rae.
The secure mode was lifted after the search and students were released at the normal dismissal time at 3:30 p.m.
Two people suffered gunshot wounds in what appear to be random shootings at the Pizza Hut and McDonalds around midnight on Sunday. Regina police believe the attacks were connected and also may be linked to two shootings on Thursday that damaged windows at a business on Albert Street and a house on Gordon Road.
