A Sherwood Park teenager is facing multiple gun charges. 

Strathcona County RCMP was called to the intersection of Mainstreet and Sherwood Drive in Sherwood Park on Thursday afternoon after reports of a man pointing a gun at drivers. 

Upon arriving, police identified the teen and arrested him without any incident. The alleged gun was located by Mounties, but it was revealed to be a fake. 

Despite this, a 15-year-old teenage boy was arrested and is facing the following charges: 

  • Pointing a firearm
  • Using an imitation firearm during an offence 
  • Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose

The boy was released from custody and is scheduled to appear in a provincial court next month. 

If you have any further information on the incident, you are asked to contact Strathcona County RCMP at 780-467-7741.
