A weapons call to a Regina residence early this morning ended after a successful negotiation and resulted in police locating and seizing a prohibited firearm.
On Wednesday June 26th, at approximately 12:12 a.m., police were dispatched to an address in the 1900 block of Winnipeg for a report of a person with a firearm. Several police units responded, set up a safety perimeter, and phone contact was made with the occupants of the house. Several individuals exited the premises, without incident, and were detained for the weapons offence investigation. Police entered the house to ensure there were no victims or injured persons inside.
