‘Shots fired’ report in Nanaimo was actually BB guns

Nanaimo RCMP

Early morning on Feb. 12, Nanaimo RCMP officers were called to an apartment building on Uplands Drive for shots fired — and when they arrived they found it was actually BB guns.

The report came in at 2:20 a.m. in the 4700 block of Uplands Drive. When officers arrived at the suspected unit, a woman answered the door.

The woman was arrested and removed from the apartment, then officers went inside and arrested three more adults.

Officers then noticed what appeared to be a long gun and multiple hand guns on a bed, then when they got closer they realized the guns were BB guns.

“Officers believed that no shots were actually fired however there had been a small disturbance that led to police being called,” RCMP said in a news release.

The BB guns were seized and destroyed, and the four arrested adults were released at the scene with no charges.
