Sunday stand-off in Campbell River ends peacefully
On Sunday September 28, 2014 at 11:28 pm, Campbell River RCMP responded to a complaint of shots fired in the 3700 block of Island Highway South between Jubilee Parkway and Colorado Drive. Multiple 9-1-1 calls from neighbours who heard shots and were able to guide officers to a specific residence.
All available police resources responded to the call and contained the area. Upon police arrival, a male and a female exited the residence, however a 16 year old male stayed inside. The RCMP Emergency Response Team (ERT) was deployed along with the police service dog. Out of an abundance of caution, neighbours were temporarily evacuated from their homes.
At approximately 3:00 am, the male exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident.
At this time, this investigation is still active. All three involved are currently in police custody. A 19 year old Campbell River man, a 19 year old Comox woman and a 16 year old Campbell River man may be facing firearms related charges.
No one was hurt in this incident and police appreciate the public’s cooperation and assistance while this incident unfolded.
