UPDATE: 2:00 p.m.
An investigation into a report of shots fired in Kamloops, this morning, has revealed that there were actually no firearms involved and no shots fired.
According to Cpl. Jodi Shelki there had been a verbal argument between a group of men and this may have been the precursor for the one report of shots being fired.
The two men who were taken into custody have been released.
Kamloops RCMP were called to a home about 3 a.m. Monday for reports of shots fired.
According to Staff Sgt. Mat. Van Laer, police arrived at Parkcrest Avenue and McLean Street after witnesses observed two men running in and out of a house with a rifle. Between one and two shots were heard coming from the area.
Police, wearing body armour and carrying heavy weapons, shut down several streets in the neighbourhood as a precaution.
“With no evidence of anyone actually getting shot, two men were taken into custody for questioning and the investigation is ongoing,” stated Staff Sgt. Mat. Van Laer.
Van Laer also emphasized there is no longer a threat to the public.
