An investigation into a report of shots fired in Kamloops, this morning, has revealed that there were actually no firearms involved and no shots fired.

According to Cpl. Jodi Shelki there had been a verbal argument between a group of men and this may have been the precursor for the one report of shots being fired.

The two men who were taken into custody have been released.
