CALEDONIA – A 13-year-old Caledonia youth is facing charges of possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and careless use of a firearm after shots from an air gun were fired at the Six Nations Reclamation site on the outskirts of Caledonia Sunday.

The shots sparked a night of fires being set at the Reclamation site Monday, arguments with Caledonia people and threats from site supporters to shut down Sixth Line Road.

Several Six Nations people showed up at the site and a verbal altercation with Caledonia residents ensued for several hours.
