At about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, RCMP received a report of shots being fired behind The Ponds at the south end of Gordon Drive.
The shots seemed to be coming from a semi-automatic weapon in the vicinity of the Gillard Forest Service Road.
Several police units responded to the area including a Police Service Dog and the Southeast District RCMP Helicopter.
According to witnesses, the occupants of a black GMC Yukon were believed to be involved and that vehicle was located on the Gillard Forest Service Road headed towards Chute Lake Road.
Two 21-year-old men and one 23-year-old man were detained for the investigation while the vehicle was searched.
A shotgun, two semi-automatic rifles and a Glock handgun were all seized from inside the vehicle.
Although their intentions may not have been criminal, the perception certainly was.
The safest place to discharge a firearm of any kind is at a firearms range which has the appropriate safety protocols in place.
No charges have yet been recommended against the three Kelowna men, but they could face a number of charges in relation to the use, transportation, storage and possession of the firearms.
