A man is facing multiple firearm related offences after shots were fired at a residence in Torbrook, N.S., Saturday morning.

A man and woman, both from Greenwood, N.S., went to a resident to drop off food to a man who was known to them.

After the man and the women arrived at the house, a second man, also known to them, allegedly exited the home and threatened the two who brought food, before shooting at them with a shotgun.

The 46-year-old man and 37-year-old woman fled the area in their vehicle, and were not injured in the incident.

In a news release from the RCMP, police responded to the report around 11:25 a.m., where they safely arrested the two men at the home.

A search warrant was executed at the residence in the afternoon, which led to officers seizing a shotgun, ammunition, and powder they believe to be cocaine.

Police have charged 27-year-old Cody Reid Palmer with:

  •  discharging a firearm with intent
  •  careless use of a firearm
  •  pointing a firearm
  •  unauthorized possession of a firearm
  •  possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized
  •  possession of a firearm contrary to probation order
  •  careless storage of a firearm
  •  uttering threats
  •  two counts of failure to comply with a probation order

Police say Palmer was remanded into custody, and is scheduled to appear in Digby provincial court on Monday.

The second man, a 28-year-old man from Torbrook, was later released without any charges.

Police say the investigation is ongoing with help from the RCMP Forensic Identification Services.
