A 50-year-old man prohibited from possessing weapons was arrested for possession of weapons on Sunday.
Regina police were assisting a mobile crisis unit in conducting a welfare check of a child at a home on the 1100 block of Garnet Street.
When police approached the house, a man stood in the doorway with his body partially obscured.
Police said one member heard what sounded like a firearm being "racked."
Police removed the man from the doorway and found a loaded shotgun.
The man faces 11 charges, including assault with a weapon and two counts of careless use of a firearm.
He made a court appearance Monday morning.
