There was a serious police incident on November 27th in Skidegate on Haida Gwaii.

Around midnight, Queen Charlotte RCMP were called in response to an assault at a residence at 181 3rd Ave.

At the residence, police saw a group of 6-10 people yelling and screaming.

When police began approaching the residence, the group began obstructing the officers.

A man, later identified as Tyson Young, was then seen leaning out a front window of the residence, aiming a high powered competition rifle at a constable.

Police responded immediately by drawing their service pistols, as members of the shouting group placed themselves between the police and Young.

An urgent call was made for all off-duty members to be activated.

One of Young’s friends, despite police orders, entered the residence, and came out with Young who was unarmed.

Officers seized two firearms, ammunition and a quantity of drugs from inside the residence.

Young is currently facing numerous firearms charges.

Queen Charlotte RCMP are asking anyone with information on the incident, including cell phone videos, to contact them.
