Two Regina schools were placed in “secure the building” mode on Thursday as police looked into a potential threat in the area.
Around 10:45 a.m., police responded to a firearms related call on the 1100 block of Broadway Avenue.
A man was seen outside an apartment building with what appeared to be a firearm, that’s when schools in the area were notified.
Due to the possible threat, Miller High School and Balfour Collegiate were placed into “secure the building” mode.
After a search of the area and the apartment building, police were unable to find the suspect.
Police know the identity of the suspect and are continuing to investigate.
The “secure the building” protocols were lifted from both schools around 12:10 p.m.
Anyone with information that could help police is encouraged to call police at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Schools are placed in “secure the building” mode when it’s believed there is a threat outside the building.
All entryways into the building are locked and each exterior door is monitored by designated school staff until the situation is resolved.
Entry and exit into and out of the building will be at a front door only and is monitored by police and school administration.
