On Sept. 10, 2017 at approximately 9:00 a.m., Elk Point RCMP responded to a residence where it was believed a carjacking with firearm occurred.
The victim dropped off several persons at a residence. Once at the residence a male pointed a firearm pointed at the victim and demanded the keys to the vehicle.
