A northern Ontario man is facing a list of charges after gunshots were fired after a dispute with a neighbour.
Officers were called to Lefebvre Peninsula Road in Moonbeam, north of Timmins, on Tuesday.
Police said no one was injured in the incident.
As a result, a 35-year-old man has been charged with:
- Careless use of a firearm, weapon, prohibited device or ammunition;
- Uttering threats to damage or injure an animal;
- Possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose; and,
- Using a firearm while committing an offence.
