A man has been arrested in a pellet-gun shooting incident in North Battleford on the weekend.
Blake Thompson, 32, faces five charges in connection to the Sunday afternoon shooting.
According to the RCMP, the Battlefords Municipal Detachment, Battlefords Rural detachment and the Forensic Identification unit responded to a 911 call at the 500 block of 100th Street in North Battleford.
A caller reported a man in a vehicle had pointed a gun at him, uttered threats to him, and shot at him twice, police say.
Police located and arrested Thompson without incident, and the gun was located and identified as a C02 BB hand gun.
Thompson faces five charges — uttering a threat, possession of a weapon, pointing a firearm, failure to comply with a probation order and discharging a pistol with intent to wound.
He appeared in North Battleford provincial court Monday and was remanded in custody for a bail hearing scheduled for Tuesday. The Crown is opposed Thompson’s release.
RCMP says the investigation continues.
