In the end, it was just a pellet gun, but it triggered a large police response.
Several Kelowna RCMP officers flooded the Hall Road neighbourhood Sunday morning after reports of a man sitting in a vehicle, drinking and with a firearm in his possession.
Residents told Castanet that police had blocked off access to the entire area from both the K.L.O. Road and Neid Road intersections. More than a dozen RCMP vehicles were spotted in the community.
About an hour later, officers cleared the scene and reopened Hall Road.
The Kelowna RCMP determined the weapon was a pellet gun. No charges were laid because investigators found no evidence that a criminal offence had been committed.
