An RCMP emergency response team was called into action on Saturday after a man allegedly threatened a shooting on the Skeetchestn Indian Band reserve.
RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said Mounties received a report about a 46-year-old man who was threatening to use a gun.
“Because the man was alone in his residence and was known to have firearms, ERT [emergency response team] was deployed to the area,” she said.
“When officers arrived on scene, the man refused to come out of his home.”
Shelkie said the man came out after speaking with a police negotiator. He was taken to hospital for assessment and Mounties seized a firearm.
