Updated April 10 at 2:19 a.m.: Greater Sudbury Police have reopened Kivi Park this afternoon after closing the facility due to a weapons complaint.
Officers were dispatched to the popular South End park at 1:06 p.m. this afternoon after someone spotted people with what appeared to be a gun.
Within about an hour, officers located the people in question. Turns out they had brought a pellet gun to the park.
"A pellet gun is always believed to be a real (weapon) until proved otherwise," GSPS said in a tweet. "Individuals entered the park with a pellet gun, which caused a safety concern for the public."
The park has been reopened and police have not said if there were any grounds to lay charges.
Greater Sudbury Police said people should expect a heavy police presence at Kivi Park.
Officers are on scene for a weapons complaint.
