One man is in custody after a police action yesterday afternoon that saw King William Street in Huntsville closed and several homes and businesses evacuated.

At approximately 4.30pm, police blocked off King William Street for what they called a serious situation while the Tactics and Rescue Unit were on the way.

Today OPP confirmed that a “bear blaster” was mistaken for gunshots.

The road was re-opened after a man was taken into custody and was also in possession of a replica hand gun.

We’ll have more details on this, as it becomes available.
