Yesterday afternoon, at 1:00 p.m., Yorkton Regional High School was placed in immediate lockdown after an individual was identified as possibly having a handgun on their person. Under RCMP advisement, the lockdown was enacted in other schools in Yorkton, and also partially in Melville. Several hours later, the lockdown was lifted.
