A 28-year-old Duncan man was arrested after firing his gun in the Lane Road area on Sunday night.
Police were called to the area around 9:30 p.m. after a series of gunshots were heard in the area around Lane Road and Hawthorne Place.
“A lone male had discharged his .30/30 into the air,” North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Krista Hobday said. “He was taken into custody without incident.”
Hobday said the suspect was “very apologetic” and is co-operating with police. He faces firearms charges.
