On the morning of Nov. 3, 2012 the local RCMP and the Prince George Emergency Response Team (ERT) responded to a domestic dispute involving a fire arm.
“The emergency response team was called in as the male suspect was reportedly armed with a firearm in the residence,” said Cst. Lesley Smith, RCMP Media Relations Officer.
“Communication was established and the male surrendered and was taken into custody without incident,” she said.
Neighbours of the residence on Tchesinkut Road south of Burns Lake were awoken early in the morning and asked to leave the area while the situation was handled.
The RCMP were alerted to the incident at 2:45 in the morning and the suspect was in custody by 8:30 a.m. that same morning.
The suspect remains in custody in Burns Lake in relation to the domestic situation.
“We don’t normally create media releases in relation to domestic situations, so I’m commenting on the ERT deployment and that it was successful in that one male was taken into custody without incident,” Smith said.
