File # 2023-35250

Multiple police officers responded to the area of Wawn and Westsyde roads this morning in response to a suspected weapons report.

On Sept. 28, 2023, around 11:11 a.m., Kamloops RCMP frontline officers received a third-party report of a man walking with what appeared to be a firearm, on Wawn Road. Officers attended and conducted patrols as part of the investigation.

Several area schools were briefly placed in a hold and secure by the school district on recommendation by the police, out of an abundance of caution, said Corporal Crystal Evelyn, Kamloops RCMP spokesperson.

Based on the quick response and investigation, no further information was discovered to substantiate the report and the hold and secure was lifted.

Anyone who has information that may be related is asked to please contact the Kamloops RCMP Detachment at 250-828-3000 and reference file 2023-35250.
