Three youths are in custody following an incident in Upper Tantallon after an irritant was sprayed at a high school.

In a social media post shortly after 10 a.m., RCMP said Bay View High School had been placed in lock down.

On X, formerly Twitter, at about 10:30 a.m. the HRCE said the school was moved from lock down to hold and secure.

At about 12:00pm the hold and secure was lifted.

Police learned that 3 youths had an altercation outside the school which moved inside, where an irritant was deployed.

No serious injuries were reported, but RCMP said EHS has been on scene and that some students and staff were affected by the irritant.
