Four people face charges after police seized a handgun from a car.

Halifax RCMP searched the vehicle Saturday after being called to a home on Ponderosa Drive in Lake Echo. Spokeswoman Const. Tamu Bracken said four people showed up unannounced at a house party, and a gun was produced after someone was assaulted.

Witnesses said they saw a man with a gun leaving in a car with three other people. Officers located the car a short time later on Highway 7. Two 18-year-old women and two men, aged 19 and 21, face weapons-related charges. One of the women also faces charges of impaired driving.
