You never know who is watching.

Durham Regional Police say they were called when someone noticed a man, dressed in camo, and holding what appeared to be a rifle.

When officers showed up on Thursday morning just before noon, they surrounded the house and found the father of the boy in the yard. He explained that his son had just received a new pellet gun as a gift.

A 15 year old, and  a 14 year old along with his older sister were all ordered out of the house, and the incident ended peacefully about 45 minutes after it started.

Police say "It became very clear there was no threat and that the teenager did not consider how his activity in the backyard would be interpreted by others."

The boy was not charged and has gone around to his neighbours to apologize for his actions.

The pellet rifle has been turned over to police to be destroyed.
