One arrested after firearm-related incident in Grande Prairie

Following a heavy police presence advisory and a shelter-in-place order for some residents in Grande Prairie’s Hillside neighbourhood, the Grande Prairie RCMP has confirmed the incident was firearm related.

Investigators say on February 26th, around 12:49 p.m., members of the RCMP responded to a firearm-related complaint where threats were allegedly made. Police say they secured the scene, negotiated the peaceful arrest of the suspect, and obtained and executed a search warrant on the residence.

As a result of the search warrant, police seized a shotgun with “multiple attachments,” an airsoft gun, and various ammunition.

32-year-old Grande Prairie resident, Duncan Alexander Lougheed, was arrested and charged with two counts of allegedly possessing a firearm while prohibited, careless use of a firearm, uttering threats, and two counts of possessing a firearm without a license.
