A youth from North Battleford has been arrested and charged with multiple firearms offences stemming from an incident last week in the Town of Battleford.

In the early hours of Wednesday, Nov. 22, numerous firearms and ammunition were stolen during a break-in at a home on First Ave. While on the scene, RCMP were dispatched to a call of shots being fired on Ross Crescent where members located a residence with numerous bullet holes.

No one inside the house was injured and the RCMP believed that the shooting was not random.

The subsequent investigation identified a 16-year-old who was arrested and charged with break and enter, possession of a weapon obtained by crime, using a firearm in commission of an offence, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, pointing a firearm, mischief, failing to comply with a court order and discharging a firearm with intent.

According to RCMP this investigation is continuing and more arrests and changes are pending.
