Sydney Mines man turns himself in after weapons call
No decision yet on charges
There were some tense moments for some people in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Sunday afternoon.
Police responded to a report of a man with a gun inside a home on Johnstone Crescent.
Staff Sgt. Stephen MacKinnon said the incident ended peacefully after about 90 minutes.
"We received a complaint about a male in and around his residence with a long gun. Officers quickly responded to the area, contained the scene, and blocked off the roads for public safety and through subsequent phone calls the male turned himself into police," he said.
MacKinnon said the man will be questioned. He said there's not been a decision yet on charges.
No one was hurt.
"No shots fired, no injuries. We take it very seriously, in terms of people with weapons in the community. We quickly activated a negotiating team, along with our emergency response officers. Actually, we have officers with our emergency response on shift, they were deployed to the area, set up containment and quickly resolved the matter," said MacKinnon.
