Two Toronto men are facing firearm charges after police responded to reports of gun shots on Georgian Bay.
West Parry Sound OPP says officers responded on Wednesday to the area of Gauge Island and Round Island in Archipelago Township, about 20 kilometers southwest of Parry Sound.
Police were told that a boater, while fishing, heard “firearm rounds shot very near to their personal location.”
According to police, officers were told the rounds originated from Round Island.
As a result, OPP says two men, a 51-year-old and a 55-year-old, both from Toronto, were charged with assault with a weapon, discharging a firearm with intent, careless use of a firearm and breach of firearms regulation – store firearm or restricted weapon.
Police say the two have a court date in Parry Sound set for October.
OPP says the local detachment was assisted by the Marine Unit, OPP Emergency Response Team, Scenes of Crime Officer, Conservation Officers from the Ministry of Natural Resources and MNR K9 Detector.
