Prince George, B.C. – A police incident has closed River Road at the Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum all the way west to the Spruce City Wildlife Association’s fish hatchery.

A witness tells 250News several police cars are currently parked at Cottonwood Island Park next to the museum with additional cars lined up along River Road.

The Prince George RCMP has not yet indicated why they are there or why the road has been closed.

We’ll update this story as soon as more information becomes available.


Given the fact Prince George is the third most dangerous city in Canada, my guess is another dead body, most likely the result of the local ongoing gang / drug war.

Hey, I am just going with the odds here… I could be wrong.

    Thwre’s a post on another site, saying there is a bomb in the woods. (?)

    Meh, not this time apparently, however, its just a matter of time before the next shooting happens, or body is found… that’s just an unfortunate fact about PG.

      There are a lot worse places in B.C. then Prince George to live. I would much rather live here then Surrey or Abbotsford

I doubt there is a bomb, they go way overboard on this stuff. Scary though, so many people jog those trails, hike etc on a daily basis. Probably some old duffle bag with a pokemon in it.

There is no bomb squad here, so the one from Vancouver or wherever is being dispatched is what I hear. The guy has been arrested. He had previous history of this.

There was an alarm at Kin 1 this morning at around the same time. Everyone had to get out of the building. Luckily there were not too many in there. The fire crew had a bird when everyone walked back in when the alarm no longer sounded.

Those manning booths were obviously not instructed on what to do with all their cash and goods they had in there. Those who were visitors obviously did not have the faintest clue.

Such events are difficult to control when there is an emergency, real or false alarm.
