Vancouver – A man arrested by Vancouver Police Monday night for carrying a gun into a Granville Street bar has now been charged.

VPD officers responded to Granville and Robson Street around 6 p.m. Monday, after a witness reported seeing a man with a gun inside a bar.

Officers arrested the man as he was leaving, and deployed bean-bag shotgun rounds when he failed to follow police commands and jeopardized public safety.

Marcus Phillip Van Schilt, 45, is now charged with possession of a weapon and breaching bail.
