Saskatoon Police have arrested 2 men as they were investigating a report of a man seen with a firearm just after 11 this morning (Thurs) in the 200 block of Avenue V South.
Officers converged in the area and around 2 o'clock arrested 2 men, ages 19 and 23 in the same area. They have been charged with break and enter and assault. No firearms were found and no one was injured.
Another man was arrested in a separate incident. Witnesses reported a person pointing a hand gun at drivers as they passed by at the intersection of 22nd Street West and Avenue W around 3:30 this afternoon. Officers found the suspect with a firearm which turned out to be a pellet gun. A 24 year old man is facing charges that include possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
In an earlier incident this morning, just after school would have begun, there was a bit of a scare for students and staff at Ecole River Heights School when a man was seen with a firearm outside the school. This was around 9:20 in the morning. The school immediately went into a perimeter lockdown. Police were called but didn't find anybody suspicious. The perimeter lockdown was lifted, but anybody with information is asked to call Police or Crime Stoppers.
