Apartments, drawing emergency response teams

A man heading home from the rifle range brought home a bag of spent bullet shells on Monday.

Several shells dropped out through a tear in the bag as he walked into his suite in North Delta, sparking a full emergency response from police.

After getting reports of the spent shells, Delta Police called in the Municipal Integrated Emergency Response Team, which descended on Shannon Apartments at 11865 80 Ave. at about 3 p.m. Monday.

One woman who lives in an adjacent co-op housing unit was visited by a sniper, who  wanted to use her apartment perch.

As of about 4 p.m. several black SUVs came roaring through the co-op, according to a witness.

One woman said it’s a fairly frightening experience.

Parents were pulling their children out of the play areas while police trained their weapons on Shannon Apartments.

Delta Police spokesman Ciaran Feenan said Tuesday the man came out of his home voluntarily and issue was resolved without incident.

“He was totally cooperative and he worked with our investigators after,” Feenan said.
