Early Wednesday morning, Nelson House RCMP said they were told a group of men showed up at the home with a gun and were banging on the door trying to get in.
Investigation revealed the group had assaulted a 19-year-old while walking in the community earlier, who ran to the home looking for help.
Officers said the group couldn’t get inside and ran away.
Police said they found them walking, but when the group saw RCMP, they fled. Authorities said one of the responders could see a member of the group carrying a long gun.
The officer chased the suspects and told them they were under arrest. Some of the suspects stopped, RCMP said, but the armed suspect kept running. Eventually, the Mountie caught up and saw him drop the gun and fall.
A 15-year-old boy was subsequently arrested, officers said.
The investigation continues.
