Pair facing weapons charges in Banting lockdown incident

Posted February 11, 2020

Two Banting students have been formally charged for their roles in triggering an approximate two hour lockdown on Feb. 4 shortly before 1 pm, after witnesses described watching one of the suspects threaten another student with a handgun, then concealed the weapon in another male's backpack.

The two male students were arrested and OPP located a pellet gun that resembled a .357 handgun.

One was charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, uttering threats, and assault, while the other is charged with possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose charge.

Both were released into their parents custody, with court appearances scheduled in March.
