For nearly 12 hours, Regina Police had to devise ways to communicate and ultimately remove barricaded suspects in a Regina home Monday.
This incident began with a police investigation into suspected property offences.
The investigation took them to a house in the 1100 block of Elphinstone Street at about 6:00 a.m.
After 10:00 a.m., someone discharged a firearm out of one of the windows of the house in the direction of police members. There were no injuries.
The police officers retreated to safety, secured a safety perimeter around the residence and Canine, Special Weapons and Tactics, and Crisis Negotiation members were authorized and joined patrol members at the scene.
What followed was a lengthy stand-off, with the occupants of the house refusing to come out and be taken into custody.
Members of the Explosives Disposal Unit who can operate the robot across spaces when it is not safe for a person to do so, were also deployed to assist in attempts to negotiate with the suspects.
Just before 9:00 p.m., a male and female suspect emerged from the house and were safely taken into custody.
Members of the SWAT team proceeded to clear the house to search for any other suspects.
Investigators will now determine what role the suspects played in the events.
