No charges after reported firearm turns out to be airsoft gun

Two people taken into custody after police responded to reports of a firearm at a Trout Lake Road residence on Tuesday have been released unconditionally.  

No charges have been laid with city police saying an investigation revealed the reported firearm was an airsoft gun. 

They also advise discretion with airsoft guns.

Police say many models resemble real weapons, and openly carrying and operating them in public areas can result in inaccurate reports being provided to police.

The North Bay Police Service Emergency Response Team was deployed on Tuesday with the situation resolved safely. 

There were no injuries. 

The service says in order to ensure public safety, they will always respond to any and all firearms-related calls as if a real firearm is involved and conduct a thorough investigation.
