Over the past few days police have received several calls from the public regarding suspicious activity and youths in possession of firearms.
Further investigation has revealed that the alleged firearms were in fact water guns used by local youths engaged in the “the assassins game.”
Several of the water guns that are being used closely resemble real firearms.
These incidents have caused public distress and elevated police response, a spokesperson said.
The Halton Regional Police Service has asked youngsters not to participate in this dangerous game, using such guns. – CINEWS
