As our officers were already on scene, they were able to quickly and safely arrest one suspect as well as seize a firearm from the vehicle, Const. Nancy Saggar, West Shore RCMP media liasion officer, said in a statement. The second vehicle, a brown Cadillac sedan was recovered on Leila Rd in Colwood. Police are still trying to determine what the involvement of the second vehicle was and its occupant or occupants. Police said they would like to speak to the occupant or occupants of the brown Cadillac sedan and ensure their well-being. One occupant of the brown Cadillac sedan is described as being a Caucasian mane in his 30s who was last seen on foot in the area of Royal Colwood Golf Club. West Shore RCMP said at this point, there is nothing connecting the shooting to another shooting in Langford two weeks ago at a duplex on Jacklin Road. David Cameron Elementary and Savory Elementary were placed in “hold and secure” but it was lifted at around 12:40 p.m. Officials said students and staff were safe inside.
Due to a police incident in the area (not school related), #SD62 David Cameron & Savory are in Hold and Secure. Kids are enjoying their lunch indoors and playing in the gym today! Please do not call the schools, students and staff are safe inside. We'll keep you posted!— School District #62 (@SD62_Sooke) April 23, 2019
Schools are no longer in Hold & Secure. Students enjoyed a rare day where they got to play inside during lunch. BIG thanks to staff for their quick actions and helping to keep everyone safe! Also thanks to @WestshoreRCMP for notifying our schools quickly. #SD62— School District #62 (@SD62_Sooke) April 23, 2019
