Vaughan man charged for pointing shotgun at and threatening youths

A Vaughan man faces charges after he allegedly pointed a shotgun at two young men last weekend.

York Regional Police say a man called police Sunday to report that his son and a friend were pointing a gun at them while they were walking.

Investigators learned that two young men were walking in the area of ​​Pine Valley Drive and Pine Heights Drive on Feb. 3 and taking pictures when someone leaving a nearby home approached them.

The suspect allegedly pointed a shotgun at the couple and told them to leave the area. As they began to leave, the suspect allegedly drove onto the sidewalk in front of them and again threatened them before leaving.

Police identified a suspect and executed a search warrant at his home. Investigators have charged Elton Lamce, 44, with possession of a weapon, making threats and pointing a firearm.

Officers also seized several firearms, including the shotgun.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact police.
