Oak Bay Police are reminding residents about the dangers of realistic-looking fake guns after the detachment responded to a call of two teens with a gun.

“We responded to call of two males on Foul Bay with a handgun,” said Oak Bay police chief Ray Bernoties on Twitter.

Officers responded to the area and located the suspect who turned out to be 14 and was in possession of a cap gun.

The teen was handed over to his parents.

“These situations can end tragically. Cap guns have orange tips and shouldn’t be carried publicly,” warned Bernoties.

Bernoties followed up the tweet with a photo of a cap gun with a proper orange identifier stating “this is what they should look like.”
