An adult male is in custody, following a police investigation into a weapons offence on Thursday, November 16, 2017 (today), which occurred in the 600 block of McIntosh Street.
Although there are still few details for release, it can be confirmed that this incident began at approximately 12:30 p.m. on November 16, 2017, when police received a report that a male with a firearm entered the residence of persons known to him, in the 600 block of McIntosh Street. No one was injured in that encounter and the male left the residence. The investigation led police to a second residence in the 4600 block of 4th Avenue. As the result of negotiation, the suspect was safely taken into police custody and a firearm recovered.
During this incident, traffic flow was restricted in the immediate area. A school in the neighbourhood was placed in a secure-the-building protocol as a precaution and, at the end of the school day, the staff and school resource officers provided oversight for dismissal of students.
Investigation into this matter is ongoing. Details as to charges will be made public once they are available. The Regina Police Service thanks the members of the public for their patience and cooperation.
