An employee at the high school in Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation received minor injuries when they were shot with an airsoft gun Sept. 19.
Nelson House RCMP responded to a call about a weapons offence shortly after 10 a.m. Monday and were told that a youth had brought an airsoft gun to school and shot a 31-year-old female employee.
The gun was taken away from the youth, who was isolated with two school employees while they waited for police to arrive.
Police arrested a 12-year-old male on several weapons charges. He was later released from custody to appear in court on a future date.
Nelson House RCMP continue to investigate.
