Soon after, officers initiated their investigation into the incident asking to public for assistance.  

As a result, a 13-year-old and a 17-year-old have been arrested and charged with multiple offences under the Youth Criminal Justice Act including possession, breaking and entering of a motor vehicle, thief under $5000, and mischief under $5000.

The 13-year-old has an additional charge of trafficking the firearm.
