100 Mile House RCMP confirm that shortly before 10 this morning a motorist traveling south on Highway 97 just outside 100 Mile House reported a young male walking on the side of the road and pointing what was believed to be a rifle pointed towards the highway.
Several patrol units from 100 Mile House RCMP responded to the 9-1-1 call and set up containment in the area of the Marmot Ridge Golf Course.
Highway 97 was also closed for a period of time while officers searched for the young male.
Further information was provided which led police to the 7-Eleven in 100 Mile House where the young male and his guardian were located.
Investigators were able to confirm that there was no firearm involved in this incident and the young boy had been pointing a stick.
RCMP say they are not considering any charges.
