Shortly before 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, Prince George RCMP received a report of a woman in area of the 2000-block of Massey Drive who appeared to be holding a handgun.

Police officers immediately flooded the area and began to search for the woman. Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of the public, those people in Carrie Jane Grey Park and the surrounding public venues were asked to leave the area and traffic along Massey Drive was shut down for a short time.
