An investigation is underway after reports of a man with a gun at a games store sent the police helicopter up in the air.

Just before noon Thursday, the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a man with a gun at Electronic Boutique Games on Banks Road, though no robbery was committed.

Staff in the store called police when they saw what they believed to be the handle of a gun sticking out of the man’s pocket.

The individual in question left the store without ever drawing, pointing or even threatening anyone with the weapon. Police executed an extensive search of the area.

The suspect was described as a 40-year-old Caucasian man with dark, curly hair, glasses, brown pants and a red hoodie.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. To remain anonymous one can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go online to crimestoppers.net or text to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
