UPDATED: Red Deer RCMP responds to ‘firearms complaint’

There was heavy police presence in a Red Deer neighbourhood early Sunday morning.

At about 4:20 a.m., Red Deer RCMP received a 911 call of a “firearms complaint.” At the time, police were asking residents in the area of Hermany Street, between 59 Avenue and Halladay Avenue, to shelter in place as police investigated.
