This morning at approximately 9:00 a.m. Montreal Lake RCMP were dispatched to reports of firearms being discharged in that community. When members from RCMP Traffic Services, Montreal Lake, Prince Albert, Sturgeon Lake and Waskesiu, detachments responded, the suspects had already fled from the residence where the shots were reportedly fired.
Based on the description provided, a suspect vehicle was located a short time later. A total of five people were arrested without further incident. One firearm was also seized. All of those involved were known to each other.
No injuries were reported.
As a precaution, the local daycare, school and band office were all temporarily placed in lock-down. Those have since been lifted.
The investigation into this matter remains ongoing.
