Arrest warrant issued after Yellowknife gunshot false alarm

An arrest warrant has been issued after Wednesday’s gunshot scare in downtown Yellowknife.

William Leonard George Turner, a 31-year-old formerly of Yellowknife, has been charged with public mischief and false messages after RCMP say he made a “false complaint” regarding a gunshot in the Northwestel Building.

The Javaroma cafe (pictured) was briefly evacuated while police investigated. They now believe Turner made it up.

“Yellowknife RCMP have determined that the complaint of a gunshot in the downtown area yesterday was indeed a false complaint,” read a police statement.
