Codiac Regional RCMP are currently searching for a man in his twenties who may do harm to himself.

Police responded to a call at 5:30 a.m. on Monday on Shamrock Avenue regarding a man doing damage inside a house and who had assaulted another man, according to police.

The suspect fled the home and was seen by a witness going into a shed where a firearm is believed to have been stored. He then headed into the nearby woods. Police verified that there was no firearm in the shed so the man may have it, said police.

In an effort to locate the man, Codiac RCMP have closed Salisbury Road to all traffic between Edinburgh Drive and Hump Yard Road.
