Fredericton police say three youths have been taken into custody after they responded to a potential weapons call at a house party early Saturday morning.
Fredericton Police Sgt. Dwight Doyle says officers responded to a residence at the intersection of Main St. and Alder St. around 1 a.m. Saturday.
Police say they were originally called to a loud party, but, before officers arrived, the call was upgraded to a potential gun call in which shots may have been fired.
The call resulted in one youth being taken into custody for weapons-related offences, and two other youths taken into custody for other criminal offences, which police did not disclose.
A video taken of the police response has gone viral on Facebook, where it had been viewed over 43,000 times as of 4 p.m. Sunday.
Fredericton Police Patrol Response teams, Major Crime team and the Emergency Response Team all attended the call.
Police say they are continuing to investigate and are not releasing any additional information at this time.
