Police make arrest after suspect threatened people with firearm

Elk Point RCMP have arrested 3 people following an incident near a residence on the Fishing Lake Metis Settlement.

On Saturday, March 5th, around 1 p.m. RCMP were dispatched to answer a complaint of a man pointing a firearm at two people, and were told the male suspect was associated with a small red car.

RCMP observed the suspect vehicle and initiated a pursuit. The pursuit proceeded north through Frog Lake First Nations where it was terminated due to public safety concerns, as the vehicle’s driving pattern was very erratic.

Another Elk Point member was doing patrols in the Fishing Lake Metis Settlement when the suspect vehicle went past him at an excessive rate of speed. The member turned around and tried to catch up to the suspect vehicle when a firearm was seen pointed out the drivers side of the vehicle and shot at the police car.  The suspect vehicle then drove into a ditch and three people, 1 male and 2 females, exited the vehicle and ran into the bush.
