Original Post:

Just before noon on Thursday, Sylvan Lake RCMP responded to a report of a  male with a gun in the vicinity of H J Cody School.

As a result, the school was  in a “lock down” status. There were no reports of injuries. RCMP vehicles were still attending the scene, but students could be seen leaving and entering the building so the lock down has now ended.

A release with additional details is anticipated.
