Mar 23rd, 2006 - 12:00:28 AM File #Chilliwack 2006-9913
"Toy pistol" shooting at local Senior Highschool
2006-9913 Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment, Chilliwack, B.C.
0n Wednesday March 22nd, at about 12:30 hrs, the Chilliwack RCMP members responded to a complaint of an assault with a weapon that had just occurred at the Sardis Senior Secondary School, located in the 45000 block of Stevenson Road. An ex-student had just entered the School and had shot at 3 students in one of the classrooms, with a toy pistol that shoots plastic pellets, commonly known as “ Airsoft Pistol”. The injuries consisted of minor marks on the skin.
Due to the seriousness of the complaint, all available officers were sent to the scene, as well as some members of the Police Dog Services and Major Crimes Unit, in an effort to ensure the safety of the students and the public. The quick response by the members achieved that goal.
The suspect, an18 year old male from Chilliwack , was immediately located near Sardis Senior Secondary School by one of the attending officers, and was subsequently arrested without incident.
The suspect was transported to the Chilliwack Detachment, where he is currently being held in custody, pending his first Court appearance scheduled for tomorrow ( March 23rd). The exact nature of the charges will also be known at that time. Further updates and details will be released as they become available.
The investigation into this matter is ongoing. The injuries are confirmed to be minor, however the local RCMP is investigating this matter as an extremely serious one.
The Police would also like to remind the public that “toy pistols” or other replicas and imitations of actual handguns become a serious threat to the safety of our community when they are carried, transported or used in public.
