Halifax Regional Police found no sign of a reported gunman and have cleared the scene at an industrial park in Dartmouth, N.S., according to Global News.
Police had evacuated several buildings after a report of a gunman in the area.
Halifax Regional Police Sgt. Jeff Carr says officers were called to a scrap yard in Burnside around 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
