RCMP Respond to ‘Gun’ Complaint
Prince George, B.C.- Prince George RCMP responded quickly to a report of person with a gun in the Tabor/ Parker area of Prince George evening.As a safety measure, officers quickly cordoned off the area to ensure there was no threat to the public.
They soon discovered the ‘gun’ was “an air soft” gun , meaning it was a toy.
The area has since been cleared, and life is returning to normal.
Given the recent shooting deaths of two people and wounding of another, it is understandable that members of the public may be a little on edge and quick to call police if they spot anything that even remotely resembles a firearm. Police are reminding those who have such toys that using them in highly public areas can result in the type of response that occurred this evening.
