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.
