Duck shooter's gun seized

The Lake Country RCMP seized what turned out to be a pellet gun after reports of someone shooting at ducks from the dock of the local lake side pub.

On May 10h,at 6:30 p.m., the Lake Country RCMP received a report of a man on the north side of the dock at the Turtle Bay Pub with what appeared to be a black handgun. The report indicated that the man was shooting at ducks. Police attended and found the individual.

The 20-year- old Lake Country man was still on the dock with friends and claimed that they had been using a pellet gun to shoot across the water to the other dock, not at the ducks.

Police say the pellet gun they were using could've certainly been mistaken for a real firearm, even up close.

The pellet gun was seized by police and will be destroyed. No charges have been recommended.
