Gun incident likely won’t win radio contest

In an attempt to win a radio station contest, a Victoria man found himself being hunted by police.

The 51-year-old brought a pellet gun the the Zone radio station at 2750 Quadra St. Monday afternoon, in an effort to win $2,000 from its “Show Your Zone” contest.

Though he told staff it was fake, police were called – but when they arrived with dogs and a rifle, he was gone.

“(The Zone) should give $1,000 to VicPD because we definitely drew a lot of attention to the radio station,” said Sgt. Grant Hamilton.

The man called police later and turned his gun in for destruction.
