No arrests after Vernon school on lockdown

A man who said he was being chased entered W.L. Seaton Secondary Monday

Students at a Vernon high school found themselves on lockdown Monday.

Administration at W.L. Seaton Secondary initiated emergency procedures after a man entered the school at about 1 p.m. and said he was being chased by another man.

“School staff made that decision (lockdown) based on an unknown individual being in the school,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the RCMP.

Police arrived on scene and spoke to the man inside the school and they are aware of the other individual.

“They are two adults not connected to the school,” said Noseworthy.

“The investigation concluded without charges.”

Students were not at risk at any time.
