Update: Police issued a release Saturday to say two men have been charged in relation to this incident.
RCMP in Nova Scotia have arrested a man after searching for him for several hours Friday.
They believe Gregory Allen Barr, 37, shot at a vehicle early in the morning on Highway 2 in the Central Onslow area of the province.
No injuries were reported.
RCMP Cpl. Chris Marshall said a motorist called police around 12:30 a.m. Friday to say he believed his vehicle had been shot with a paint ball.
Marshall said the motorist called back a couple of hours later to say he'd discovered a bullet lodged in his vehicle. At that point, it became a weapons call.
Marshall said the motorist was able to provide a vehicle description and partial licence plate, which enabled police to narrow their search.
The Mounties issued an alert at 9:07 a.m., describing Barr as "dangerous."
"Thankfully, there's been no injuries in the incident where the shot was fired," RCMP Marshall said.
"We haven't received any other reports. It's just this one report."
He said that given the situation, RCMP wanted people to be aware and also to know to contact them if they saw Barr.
Police say in a statement that Barr was seen driving a grey Honda Civic on Treaty Trail in Millbrook First Nation. He was arrested early Friday afternoon in Londonderry, N.S., which is north of where he was last seen.
The RCMP posted a tweet just after 11 a.m. saying the search involved an emergency response team, police dog services and air services.
In an update Saturday, police say Barr has been charged with several firearms offences.
A second man has also been charged in connection with the incident and is facing multiple firearms offences.
Both will appear in provincial court in Truro on Monday.
Police say neither man knew the victim.
