A Delta student who posted a photo of himself holding an Airsoft BB gun with a “threatening caption” caused a 40-minute lockdown of Burnsview Secondary School in Delta on Thursday morning.

The student had posted the photo in a social group of his, but it “did not stay there and was distributed,” a Delta Police spokesperson told Daily Hive.

Police responded to the incident at approximately 9:58 am and a Code Yellow was initiated by the school while officers conducted the investigation.

In the end, “circumstances were confirmed and no weapon [was] found on site,” police said.

The student was located, no charges were laid, and the matter is being dealt with “at the school level.”
