Around 1 p.m., OPP responded to reports of gunfire in the area of Thomson Road, a rural area just east of the village of Campbellford, about 60 kilometres southeast of Peterborough.

Sgt. Jason Folz of the OPP’s Central Region tells Global News Peterborough that the OPP’s Tactics and Rescue Unit (TRU) was initially contacted but has since been cancelled.

The OPP’s Criminal Investigations Branch is on the scene, Folz said, but no other details were released.

According to Global News Peterborough freelance videographer Pete Fisher, crime scene tape surrounds a home. Thomson Road is closed at the 8th Line East.

More to come.
