A man with a record for similar offences in the past is back in custody, suspected of narrowly missing a teenage girl with a gunshot.

Colby Sealley John Johnson, 39, was arrested after police were called to a 2100-block Quince Street home on Sunday night.

"The 16-year-old victim told police she was at the residence when an adult male pointed a gun and shot it at her, narrowly missing her. The victim, who was uninjured, left the residence and contacted police," RCMP said.

Due to the nature of the call, the North District RCMP emergency response team was called to the scene to make the arrest. 

Several firearms, a large quantity of suspected fentanyl and over $8,000 in cash were subsequently seized, RCMP said.

Johnson has since been charged with careless use of a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm. Johnson is bound by a lifetime firearm ban, RCMP noted.

In December 2012, Johnson was sentenced to four years in prison in relation to a May 2011 seizure of a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun and a sawed-off .22 calibre bolt action rifle from a 200-block Quince Street home.

And in February 2017, he was sentenced to a further 391 days in jail and prohibited from driving for three years for leading police on a wild chase while driving a stolen pickup truck.
