Standoff Near Mayerthorpe Requires Major Response

A scary situation on the Alexis Indian First Nation on Wednesday required the RCMP Emergency Response Team.

Reports came in of a male who had struck his common-law wife with a fire arm, then barricaded him and his significant other inside a residence on the reserve.

Sergeant Scott McAuley said the situation lasted about three hours.  The use of the ERT was required after the suspect told RCMP that he wasn’t coming out without a fight.

Thankfully, the victim only suffered minor injuries.  The suspect, who has yet to be formally identified, was wanted on several outstanding warrants and was eventually taken into custody.
