Onion Lake suspect in court to answer weapons charges, forcible confinement

A male-suspect was due in court on Monday after Onion Lake RCMP were called to a report of a shot being fired.

On March 31 at about 8 p.m., Onion Lake RCMP got a report of a firearm discharge on Onion Lake First Nation.

Their investigation determined a male-suspect had forced an individual to stay in the residence, and discharged a firearm at them. The victim was able to leave the residence safely and did not report any injuries to police.

Officers went to the home and arrested the suspect without incident. They seized three firearms at the property.
