“The situation has been handled and there is no current threat to public safety.”
Earlier today the FBPD received a report of an adult male on the Greenway stalking about with a rifle. Officers responded and located the subject who was found to be in possession of a single shot pellet rifle, although it looked like a standard sized .22 rifle.
Through an interview and search it was found the subject had been wading into the waters, hunting frogs.
FBPD officers are coordinating with FWC and have escorted the subject out of the Greenway.
The visual of him stalking about with a rifle certainly caused a level of concern, however, the situation has been handled and there is no current threat to public safety.
