Police respond to reports of weapons at Royal Roads University

The Colwood-based university has reopened to the public after police incident

The West Shore RCMP was called to Royal Roads University in Colwood for reports of weapons Friday afternoon.

Police confirmed some individuals were detained but they were released because they were not the suspects police were looking for.

A witness took video footage of police responding to the call and approaching the suspects.

The local detachment is looking for video surveillance of the incident but it is believed the weapons were Airsoft guns.

Police have confirmed the incident is over and there is no more risk to the general public.
