Campell River RCMP are investigating after responding to multiple reports of shots being fired early Monday morning, leading to three arrests.
Officers responded to Quinsam Road shortly after 3:30 a.m. and found three people walking in the area, with one carrying a semi-automatic pistol.
Police took a 23-year-old female, a 20-year-old male and a 26-year-old male into custody.
RCMP says multiple firearms have been seized for public safety reasons and the investigation into the incident continues.
“At this point, there is not an indication that any person was targeted with the late-night shooting,” said Campbell River RCMP Cst. Maury Tyre.
“We are in the middle of determining which charges can be recommended for the individuals involved, but believe with firearms seized there is no remaining threat to public safety.”
