  • UPDATE: Panorama Ridge Secondary in Surrey on lockdown after an assault with a weapon

The RCMP say a male youth has been injured in an assault with a weapon outside a high school in Surrey, B.C.

Mounties say police responded to an assault with a weapon complaint outside Panorama Ridge Secondary on Monday.

Police say the injured youth was taken to hospital in stable condition and the school was placed on a "hold and secure" until the safety of all students was confirmed.

The RCMP say initial indications are that the assault was related to a dispute among people who know each other.

Three suspects were identified in this assault. All of them are underage, and not previously known to police.

Two youths have been arrested. Police say the third suspect surrendered later on Monday and all three youths remained in custody overnight.

The suspects were scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. 

The victim was taken to hospital in stable condition Monday and police have not released further details about what led to the assault.

A statement issued Tuesday by RCMP says the attack is believed to be related to an ongoing dispute among the teens and is not linked to gang activity, and there's no indication of any continuing risk to safety at the school.
