Revelstoke RCMP responded to a report of a young man with a handgun on Saturday, Feb. 4, but it turned out to be a BB gun.

Revelstoke RCMP S-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen said someone called RCMP after they observed a group of five young men, one of them displaying a silver handgun to the others. The incident happened in the 1200-block of Second St. West.

“He then was observed to place this down the front of his pants,” said Olsen in a statement. “Police attended and secured all five individuals. Search of the young men showed a total of three BB replica handguns.”

Police say the young men were playing around, shooting each other with the BB guns. The RCMP say no ill intentions were involved.

“Even from a short distance these guns appeared to be real,” Olsen said. “Police would like to caution any BB gun users that you keep these items in an appropriate place, not out in the public view.”
