Multiple gun shots were fired just before noon Thursday in an area of Kings County.
RCMP say a man in Green Meadows, near Morell, was working at a residence when he heard multiple shots from a rifle.
Unsure of where the shots were coming from or what the intended target was, the man quickly left the area and contacted police once he felt he was in a safe area.
Kings District RCMP responded, secured the area, and began searching for the source of the gun shots. Police say the rifle sounds were coming from an adjacent property where a local man was sighting-in his hunting rifle.
No charges are expected to be laid.
