Shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday, Halifax Regional Police issued a press release indicating that officers were at the scene of a residence on Old Sambro Road in Spryfield. Police said the incident started with a report earlier today of a man pointing a gun. The officers who responded blocked off a section of Old Sambro Road and Dentith Road.
At 4 a.m. on Monday, police released an update saying the issue had been resolved. No criminal charges were laid, but police fined 10 adults who had exceeded the assembly limit prescribed under the Health Protection Act.
Currently, Nova Scotians cannot come together indoors or outdoors with anyone outside of their home bubble. Households of two or fewer people can socialize with one or two other people, but they must be the same people.
Police said the 10 people who were ticketed early Monday were not from the same household.
The fine for a first offense is $ 2,000, recently increased by $ 1,000.
Including those 10 people, police convicted 37 people of violating the Health Protection Act over the weekend, totaling $ 74,000 in fines.
