(WINNIPEG, MB) – Officers with the Winnipeg Police Service have swarmed a home near the corner of Toronto Street and St Matthews Ave.
A concerned citizen in the area caught the police presence unfold on video. Police can be heard demanding someone to exit the home with their hands above their head.
This type of police presence is not consistent with a drug raid, so we do not believe at this time that the situation is drug-related. We have experienced these types of scenes unfold when someone is deemed dangerous and has significant outstanding warrants for their arrest.
Police appear to have made at least one arrest at the scene, from what can be observed through the videos. We are working hard to uncover more information. We are now waiting to see if police will do a media release.
Winnipeg Police Guns and Gangs unit is on location.
Below are the videos.
