At 11 a.m., several patrol units, including members of the Emergency Response Team, responded to a report of a man who had left a firearm on a Halifax Transit bus. The man left on foot walking southbound on Albermarle Street in Halifax. He was quickly apprehended at 11:08 a.m. near Argyle Street and Carmichael Street without incident and remains in custody.
