Don't bring your fake guns on the streetcar

Officials in Toronto are warning cosplayers to leave their replica weapons at home if they're taking public transit to Fan Expo this weekend.

A cosplayer caused a bit of a fright on Friday when he was spotted carrying what appeared to be a semi-automatic rifle on a Toronto streetcar.

Police say they got a number of calls about a man with a gun on the streetcar.

Police say the man was escorted off by a number of officers and put in handcuffs.

It was later determined that the rifle was a replica and that the man was dressed up and on his way to Fan Expo.

The man will not face any charges.
