Some tense moments for the Portage la Prairie RCMP and at least a handful of suspects, as both sides were in a standoff.
Mounties received a report at 11:30 p.m. Manitoba time yesterday (Mon) regarding a suspicious male and a white car in the driveway at a home in Portage.
Police discovered four individuals inside the home, including a man with a firearm, and barricades had been set up inside.
After ignoring police orders to exit the residence, tear gas was used and two women got out, while two men inside were arrested shortly after.
The two males remain in custody, while the other pair were released and are being treated as witnesses and possibly victims.
