A young Kamloops man was arrested Monday after Mounties received reports he was armed with a firearm following an assault.
RCMP officers found the 19-year-old man at the Petro-Canada just off the Trans-Canada Highway on Copperhead Drive in west Kamloops at about 5 p.m.
An RCMP news release said the man had been involved in an assault earlier in the afternoon and his firearm was “recovered at a nearby location.”
Mounties were seen approaching a building with weapons drawn.
The suspect’s name has not been made public and no further information about the incident was released by police.
