Editor’s Note: The initial suspect was acquitted of all charges. Global News has since removed their identity from the story.
A Collingwood family of four that was on a walk in the Grey Highlands was allegedly threatened by someone who fired gunshots overhead on Sunday morning, according to OPP.
An individual was later arrested and charged with the careless use of a firearm, pointing a firearm and breaching firearms regulation.
Police say the family, which included two children, was on a family-owned, rural piece of land on South Line A and was reportedly threatened by a neighbouring resident, who accused them of trespassing before firing several gunshots.
According to officers, the family returned to their vehicle and called the police. No injuries were reported.
The suspect was scheduled to appear in court in Owen Sound on May 16.
