Two male minors and an 18-year-old man face several charges following an incident where shots were allegedly fired at a home on the O’Chiese First Nations Reserve on Monday afternoon.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP responded to a report of shots being fired at a residence on the reserve about 80 km west of Red Deer around 6 a.m.

One of the rounds entered the residence through a wall. More than seven people were in the home when the shots were fired, including small children. No one was injured.

The RCMP seized one high-powered rife and one sawed-off shot gun.
