Merritt RCMP involved with another incident at Merritt Secondary School.
Cst Tracy Dunsmore says officers already on school grounds following a social media threat made to the high school school this past weekend were made aware of two students acting suspicious in the parking lot.
"The member went over and spoke to the two. They did have in their vehicle a replica firearm that was not used in any offense or used to threaten anybody, just bad timing to have something like that on site. Especially on a day like today after this week's events."
Dunsmore says the two students were remorseful and not facing criminal charges, with any discipline being handled through the school district.
She says the incident at the school today is not believed to be related to the threat from the weekend, and continues to stress that no students at the school are at risk.
