Police call in Rose Hill backed up traffic, but turned out to be a non-event

A brief but heavy police presence on Rose Hill Road on Thursday afternoon turned out to be a non-event.

Just before 2:30 p.m., police were called for a report of a vehicle parked on the side of the road with a damaged windshield and a person slumped over the steering wheel.

Emergency crews were told the incident was a possible shooting.

“When officers arrived, they found two people inside the vehicle,” RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said. “They were not injured or in medical distress.”

Shelkie said the car was towed because of its damaged windshield and “some mechanical deficits.”

The incident impacted traffic in the area for about 45 minutes.
