A man has been arrested after brandishing a firearm in a bar in La Malbaie, in the Charlevoix region, in the night from Saturday to Sunday.
It is the result of a fight between two men around 1: 15 in the morning, that the police of the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) have been called on to intervene.
Meanwhile, a third man reportedly tried to intervene by showing a handgun, according to several witnesses. However, no shots had been fired, and therefore no one was injured in this incident.
“The third individual was located later by the police and placed under arrest,” says the spokesperson for the SQ, Valerie Beauchamp.
The suspect has been released on a promise to appear and under several conditions.
It comes before the court for “later” to charges of possession of restricted firearm with uttering threats, assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous.
Witnesses remain to be faced in this event, precise-t-on.
