Sarnia’s Rainbow Park is now open to the public after police closed the area following reports of a shooting Sunday morning.
Police say officers had contained and searched the south Sarnia park, along with the adjacent waterfront area and neighbouring yards after gunshots were heard in the area around 6 a.m.
“The SPS drone was deployed and used to conduct a visual search from the air – allowing officers to search areas they could not access on foot,” a news release noted. “As a result of these findings, there is no known risk to public safety in the area and Rainbow Park is now accessible to the public.”
