Victoria Police responded to calls of a firearm at Centennial Square Thursday afternoon.
A response team investigated and took one person into custody with no injuries.
After further investigation, police were able to locate a handgun-shaped lighter during a consensual search of a bag. They are unclear if this was the item originally reported.
The person taken into custody was later released, with no weapons seized and no charges anticipated.
UPDATE | We do not believe that there is an ongoing threat at Centennial Square at this time. We'll have more information as our investigation continues. #F1827591
