As it turns out, there were no shots fired, nor any firearm involved, when heavily armed and heavily armoured Kamloops Mounties shut down streets in a North Shore neighbourhood in the wee hours of Monday morning.
Police said a caller claimed to have heard shots and to have seen two men entering and leaving a home in the area of Parkcrest Avenue and McLean Street at about 3 a.m.
Mounties responded with force and arrested two men, but did not find a weapon.
Later Monday, Cpl, Jodi Shelkie confirmed there had been no shots fired.
“The investigation revealed that there was no firearm involved and no shots were fired,” she said. “There had been a verbal argument between a group of men and this may have been the precursor for the one report of shots being fired.
Shelkie said the two men who were taken into custody have been released.
