Gun play no joke

A Central Saanich student is in legal trouble after allegedly threatening a school.

According to police the student allegedly posted a threatening photo to social media.

Police say they were alerted to a video posted to Instagram of a Stelly's Secondary student firing a gun into a small target with the caption "practicing for school."

Sgt. Andy Duke said he was told the unidentified teen fired the weapon twice in a wooded area.

The male student was tracked down and arrested without incident Monday.

Investigators say they're recommending charges of uttering threats and mischief.

Police are using the incident to encourage parents to speak with their kids about how and how not to use social media.
