  • Nearly two dozen students and staff contaminated by bear spray at East Vancouver high school.

Vancouver – Vancouver Police are investigating after nearly two dozen students and staff were contaminated by bear spray during an assault Wednesday morning inside an East Vancouver high school.

VPD officers responded to Killarney Secondary when staff called 9-1-1 shortly after 9 a.m. to report that someone had deployed noxious spray in the building.

Investigators believe two teenaged suspects, who do not attend Killarney, entered the school just after 9 a.m. and attempted to assault a male student. The suspects deployed bear spray then fled in a vehicle.

Approximately 2,000 students were evacuated from the school while firefighters and paramedics decontaminated staff and students who had been sprayed. A number of students were taken to hospital as a precaution.

Vancouver Police have identified the suspects and believe the incident was targeted.

The investigation is ongoing.
