Shots fired at neighbourhood barbecue in Tottenham

Suspect is accused of firing several rounds into the air

Things got heated at a neighbourhood barbecue in Tottenham, and this had nothing to do with what was cooking on the grill.

Nottawasaga OPP said there was a dispute at a residence on Martin Trail Saturday night when a man allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired several rounds into the air before fleeing in a vehicle. No one was injured. The man turned himself into police the next day.

Charges against the 31-year-old from New Tecumseth include unlawful possession of a restricted firearm, careless use of a firearm and two counts of uttering threats.

The gun has not been recovered.
