RCMP say two suspects are in custody and there's no risk to the general public, following the lifting of an emergency alert that was issued Saturday for Colchester County, N.S.

Police had urged people to shelter in place and lock their doors and windows because of "dangerous people with firearm" in Millbrook, N.S.

The First Nations reserve is located near Truro in central Nova Scotia.

Earlier in the afternoon, the RCMP wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, that one man was in custody following possible shots fired near Willow Street in Millbrook.
