Police investigating a report of a weapon complaint

Halifax Regional Police are currently investigating a single unconfirmed report of a man carrying a rifle in the downtown core of Halifax.
At 8:36 a.m., several patrol units, including members of the Emergency Response Team, responded to a report of a man walking in the area of Duke and Brunswick Streets in Halifax carrying what is believed to be a rifle. He was reported to be wearing black cargo pants and an ear piece and was concealing what is reported to be a rifle wrapped in black cloth. We are currently attempting to confirm the single report as well as locate the man. There has been no report of shots being fired or any threats.
At this point, this is an active call and we continue to investigate. We ask for citizens to follow the directions given to them by police on scene and remain calm. If you have witnessed anything suspicious that may be related to this incident, please contact Halifax Regional Police at 902-490-5020.
