Man suspected of having a weapon arrested near Shas Ti Kelly Road Secondary

Prince George RCMP are currently investigating an incident that occurred near Gray Road and Kelly Road South at approximately 2:45 p.m. this afternoon, December 14, 2023.

Police officers were initially advised there was a man in the area who appeared to have a weapon and was near residences. When investigators approached the man, he ran away into the nearby woods.

“Out of an abundance of caution, Shas Ti Kelly Road Secondary School was put on a hold and secure as police officers were aware school would be letting out soon. This was done to minimize foot traffic and enhance public and police safety,” said Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.

With the assistance of a Police Dog Services unit, the suspect was located and arrested within 30 minutes of police receiving the initial 9-1-1 call. He is currently being held in custody while investigators collect further evidence and speak with witnesses.

If anyone in the area has video surveillance or dash camera footage that shows the movements of the suspect in this investigation, you can contact a police officer by calling the Prince George RCMP non-emergency line at 250-561-3300.
