Police surround NWSS after report of gun on grounds

A report of a student with a gun at New Westminster secondary just before the end of school Friday turned out to be false, according to police.
Two students reported a boy, possibly a student, tried to sell them a gun. Police vehicles surrounded the school before confirming no threats were made and a firearm had not been seen.
The school was not placed under lockdown but students were instructed to leave the grounds as soon as the bell rang for the last class.
A police search confirmed the school was clear of any threats and the suspect was found.
