Police received reports of damage to the windshield of the Percy Street facility Friday night.

Mayor Jim Watson tweeted that he was “concerned about learning that shots were fired” at the arena where COVID-19 vaccines and tests are being administered.

But police said they arrested a 36-year-old man on Sunday and charged him with assault, stating that the damage to the site was caused by slingshots, not a bullet.

“There is no evidence to indicate that this incident was directed at any of the services or activities at the facility,” police added in a statement.
