PETERBOROUGH, Ont. – A Peterborough resident, apparently fed up with noisy Fleming College residents, threatened to shoot some of them early Tuesday morning, city police said.
Problems began Monday evening, police said, when a group of students were standing outside a student residence at 7 p.m.
One student was twirling a baton.
Police said the group noticed a man across the street, standing in his garage and pointing what looked like a firearm at him.
The man told the group he could shoot the baton from where he was standing, police said.
At about 2:30 a.m. the man threatened to shoot the students and referred to the ongoing noise coming from the residence, police said.
Officers discovered that his gun was a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun.
Colin Adamson, 60, was charged with possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm. He is to appear in court Sept. 26.
