The incident began around 3:30 PM, when officers were called to the 200 block of Ritchie Street. Officers located a victim and determined some type of incident occurred inside the home. Police did not state what actually happened in their initial release.
Due to the nature of the incident, nearby homes were evacuated and the Emergency Response Team was called in from Prince George.
Police began negotiating with the occupants inside the house and after several hours, two of the residents surrendered. A short while later a third person, who was located hiding inside the residence, was taken into custody. This man was wanted on several outstanding warrants and is known to police.
