Replica submachine gun found hanging from apartment balcony seized

Victoria police seized what they described as a “realistic” replica submachine-gun-style firearm Wednesday afternoon after a resident reported spotting it in a shopping bag outside a multi-unit residential building.

The firearm was hung from a balcony at the building in the 100-block of Gorge Road East, in the Burnside Gorge neighbourhood. The firearm’s position made it accessible to someone who didn’t have direct access to the complex.
