Nanaimo RCMP Do Not Endorse 'Shoot to Kill'

Grade 12 students in Nanaimo commence
"Shoot to Kill" competition

The Nanaimo RCMP wishes to advise the public of a game involving Grade 12 students across Nanaimo, called "Shoot to kill" or "STK". The game involves competitors being assigned a "target". To win the competition, the target must be hit with a burst of water from a water gun. The person with the most confirmed "hits" or "kills", wins the competition. The entry fee is $10 per person and runs to the end of June.

"The Nanaimo RCMP does not endorse this game as some participants will put themselves in precarious situations that could be considered suspicious by others" said Constable Gary O'Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.  "In previous years it has led, in some situations, to police involvement. The general public is reminded if you see suspicious behaviour in your neighbourhood; do not discount it as part of this game. If it warrants calling the police, do so," said Constable Gary O’Brien.

"Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools considers the safety of its students a top priority,” said Scott Saywell, Assistant Superintendent – Secondary Schools. "The district cannot control the activities of its students outside of the classroom, however this is an opportunity to remind all of our students that they must make smart and safe choices. My worst fear would be to hear that one of our students gets injured, or worse, while playing this game", said Saywell.
