Around 12:30 p.m., police were dispatched to the area of 1700 block of Montreal St after a report of two men allegedly shooting at someone from the back of a house. No one was hurt in the incident.

Police said in a press release that a replica Glock-style pellet gun was seized from the house from which the men were allegedly shooting.

The men, aged 34 and 49, both face one charge each of careless use of a firearm, possession of a firearm contrary to prohibition, and reckless discharge of a firearm.

Meanwhile, a 19-year-old Regina man will also appear in provincial court next week charged with robbery after a separate Friday incident.

Police said in a press release they were called to the area of 1100 block Angus St around 9:30 a.m. after a report of a man trying to break into multiple vehicles. When police arrived they said they saw the man allegedly assault a taxi driver and then drive away in his taxi. The taxi driver was not seriously injured.

Police unsuccessfully attempted to stop the taxi. Shortly after, the vehicle hit a fence and the man was arrested after he attempted to flee on foot.
