File: 2018-739592

St. Albert, AB - Between May 26 and May 29, 2018, a black arrow was shot into a backyard of a residence located on Langley Avenue. The arrow pierced the shed in the backyard of this residence, but luckily no one was hurt.

While archery is a fun sport, safety must be practised at all times. The St. Albert Protection of Persons and Property Bylaw 36/2017, includes bows and arrows along with pellet guns and BB guns in the weapons that are classified as "firearms" in St. Albert. Section 4(1) of this Bylaw states that "No person shall discharge any firearm within the City of St. Albert Limits" and anyone found guilty under this Bylaw could be facing a minimum of a $250.00 fine.

This means that all archery and pellet gun or BB gun shooting cannot be practised in residential yards or City green spaces. St. Albert RCMP encourage archery enthusiasts to join proper archery ranges where they can practice their sport in safety.

Anyone who has any information as to the identity of the party or parties responsible is asked to call St. Albert RCMP at 780-458-7700.
