Police asked the residents who live in the area of Desmond Drive and Kelly Dawn Place in Langford, near the border with Colwood, to remain in their homes last night as they searched the area for a gunman after a single gunshot was heard in the area around 6 p.m. Thursday night.

Police closed off a portion of Desmond Drive during the search, which saw the Vancouver Island Emergency Response Team, West Shore RCMP and five police dogs – including one from Saanich – search the area, resulting in the apprehension of the lone male.

The man is now in custody and being questioned by investigators.
