F.W. Johnson Collegiate in Regina's east end is no longer under lockdown after what police had described earlier as an "incident" Friday morning.

Police issued a news release just after 10 a.m. CST, saying they were on scene at 400 Fines Drive. They asked people to avoid the area.

The following nearby elementary schools were also in secure-the-building mode — meaning all doors were locked and people were only able to leave through the front doors with permission from police and school staff — as a precaution:

  • St. Theresa School.

  • Judge Bryant School.

  • Dr. George Ferguson School.

  • St. Catherine School.

  • Glen Elm Community School.

  • Henry Braun School.

Around 11:45 a.m. CST., police said the situation had been resolved "without incident."

Regina Public Schools subsequently lifted its lockdown and secure-the-building modes for all schools affected.

Police said the incident is still under investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
