A big police response in Newton today, for an incident police initially thought involved a gun.
Corporal Scotty Schumann with the Surrey RCMP says officers were called to an apartment near 138th street and 74th avenue just after 11 this morning.
“We received a report that there was a disturbance that possibly involved a firearm, so that obviously resulted in a large police presence. As it turns out, it was a disturbance between parties known to each other. An imitation firearm was present.”
Schumann says one person was hurt in the altercation and taken to hospital with minor injuries.
He couldn’t say how many people were involved in the scuffle, but says no one has been arrested.
