Man faces nine charges after gunplay in Masset

  • Feb. 6, 2008 3:00 p.m.

No one was injured during a shooting in Masset on Friday night. Just after 11pm on Feb. 1, Masset RCMP investigated a report from a Masset residence that a man had discharged a shot gun in a dangerous manner. A group of local residents were present and all parties were known to each other, said Constable Chad Chamberlain. A man was apprehended and now faces nine criminal charges, including numerous firearms related charges. He’s being held in custody and will appear in court in Prince Rupert on Feb. 7. A second male, who did not fire a gun, was also arrested on firearms related charges. He was released on bail. In Queen Charlotte, RCMP arrested a man in Skidegate after receiving a complaint that someone had broken into a home and stolen tools on Jan. 21. On the same day, police arrested another man in Skidegate after receiving an arrest warrant from the courts. The male was held in custody until he could be brought before a Justice of the Peace. He was released on conditions. On Jan. 25, police were advised that a 34-year-old male had left Queen Charlotte by canoe three days earlier. Police could not locate the male at his reported destination, so initiated a search. The man was located on Maude Island by the Coast Guard and was returned to Queen Charlotte by police.
