Some ill-advised late-night target shooting in a Burnaby park has ended with criminal charges for three people.
On Wednesday, March 6, at approximately 8:40 pm, members of the Burnaby RCMP received a report describing loud bangs coming from Centennial Park.
Upon investigation, officers found three people who were practising target shooting with a hunting rifle.
The group of three, including two adult males and one adult female, were taken into custody and face a number of firearms-related charges.
Fortunately, an extensive search of the park revealed that there are no known injuries to people or animals.
None of the individuals are known to police.
