Multiple schools in Fall River, N.S., were placed on lockdown after the RCMP responded to a weapons complaint at Lockview High School around noon on Monday. An 18-year-old man was subsequently arrested and a handgun, the weapon in question, was found nearby.

Nobody was hurt during the incident, according to CTV News.

“At about 12:57 p.m., we arrested an 18-year-old male and we recovered the item that was the subject of the complaint; the weapon,” said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, with Halifax Regional Police.

The high school was put into a “hold and secure” state while police dealt with the situation in the area, a decision made by the Halifax Regional Centre of Education and the police.

The HRCE sent out a tweet at 1:20 p.m. to relieve everybody involved saying, “Lockdown at Lockview High School has been lifted. Hold & Secure at area elementary & junior highs lifted as well. Everyone is safe. Schools will be updating parents later today. Thanks to RCMP N.S. for keeping our communities safe.”
