RCMP are urging people in Millbrook, N.S., to shelter in place and lock their doors and windows because of “dangerous people with firearm” in the community. 

In the emergency alert sent out at 5 p.m. on Saturday, police advised those in the area not to pick up hitchhikers or disclose their locations and to remain in a secure place.

The First Nations reserve is located near Truro in central Nova Scotia.

RCMP spokesperson Brianna LeBlanc said it’s unclear how many people police are looking for.

She said they do not have vehicle or suspect descriptions.

Earlier in the afternoon, just after 4 p.m., the RCMP wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, that one man was in custody following possible shots fired near Willow Street in Millbrook. Police said at the time that they were on the scene and that additional updates would follow.
