Police converged on Earl Marriott Secondary Wednesday afternoon

Code Red: Police swarm South Surrey high school following gun report

Earl Marriott Secondary was locked down briefly Wednesday afternoon, after someone reported seeing a weapon.

  • Oct. 17, 2012 12:00 p.m.
  • News

A report of a weapon at Earl Marriott Secondary this afternoon led to a ‘Code Red’ lockdown of the school.

Police swarmed the area around 3:30 p.m. – as the school day was ending – and there were reports the police helicopter was also called in.

As it turned out, the weapon was what one officer on the scene described as a “fake,” a replica pellet gun.

Police say a 15-year-old student pointed the imitation weapon at another student near the school smoking pit.

The lockdown was lifted soon after, and one teenaged boy was taken into custody for questioning.

Earl Marriott, located at 15751 16 Ave., has a student population 1,920 students and more than 120 teachers and support staff.

A code red lockdown on Brookswood Secondary has now been lifted and Langley RCMP have entered the building to conduct a thorough search, after they received a report at around 2 p.m. of a suspicious male in a field east of the high school, possibly carrying a gun.

“Initial reports were not firsthand, so the school was immediately locked down out of an abundance of caution,” said police.

“At this point in time, there is no evidence to indicate an armed individual entered the school and there have been no reports of injuries or violent acts,” said Langley RCMP Supt. Murray Power.

Brookswood Secondary locked down as RCMP search school  grounds for suspicious male seen in east field.

A lockdown occurs when a perceived threat results in all students and staff being held inside the school and no one is allowed in or out of the building.

Police incident underway at Brookswood Secondary School. Many parents are waiting outside, not knowing what is going on. More details to come.

A post shared by Langley Times Newspaper 📰 (@langleytimes) on

Worried parents who came to school to pick up their children gathered outside the school and traffic was backed up 208 Street as far as 40 Avenue as people tried to get into the parking lot, where they encountered a heavy police presence.

Some parents reported that students had remained calm, while police officers surrounded the school, some carrying rifles. Others took to social media, saying several police cars were seen speeding to the area.

@ScanBC any idea what’s going on in langley? 15 police cars just made there way going full speed towards brookswood

— Kati Trip (@ladykati15) November 22, 2017

At 3:10 p.m. the Langley School District announced the lockdown had been lifted.

Langley RCMP Sgt. Alex Mulvihill told worried parents gathered outside the school that there was no danger to their children and that, following police protocol, students would be released from the school one classroom at at a time as police conducted their search.

One parent told the Times she would only be relieved once she saw her daughter. She said she only learned of the situation, which she described as “very scary,” when she arrived to pick up her daughter from school.
