Two teens have been arrested following an altercation that involved an imitation firearm Monday afternoon at Kildonan Place mall.

Police said officers were called to the 1500 block of Regent Avenue for reports that someone had been shot.

Several police units arrived at the scene and found a 17-year-old male had been stopped by Kildonan Place security and an off-duty police officer.
