A 69-year-old man was taken into custody after police responded to a weapons call in the Halifax area on Saturday.
Halifax Regional Police say they received a report that a man inside a residence in the 0-200 block of Fergusons Cove Road may be in possession of a firearm.
“There was concern for the individuals safety and as a result a small section of Fergusons Cove Road had restricted access,” police said in a news release Saturday.
Nearly six hours after police responded to the scene, the suspect was taken into custody.
Police say there is no longer a threat to public safety.
Officers say they will release more details as they become available.
