An Elliot Lake man is facing several weapons charges following an altercation with another man.

OPP Constable Phil Young says police were called out to a disturbance at an apartment on Beckett Boulevard on Thursday around 7:00am.

The two had been drinking, got into an argument and the complainant says he was threatened with a gun.

A 52-year-old man was charged with careless use of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon and assault with a weapon.

He is to appear in Elliot Lake court today.
