Weapon Call

A 27 year old man is in custody following an emergency medical call from a city transit bus.

Just before 3:00 p.m. the bus driver alerted MD Ambulance to an unresponsive passenger on a bus at Wollaston Crescent and Kingsmere Blvd. When paramedics arrived the male refused treatment and fled the scene. Paramedics called Police and reported seeing a handgun in the waistband of the man's pants.

Police arrived on the scene shortly afterward and arrested the male in the area of Whiteshore Crescent. The gun was found to be a toy.

The male is now in custody on a number of outstanding warrants and an intoxication charge.
