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.
