Winnipeg police have blocked off part of Marion Street and are telling residents in the area to stay inside.
A CBC reporter in the area says there are multiple police cruisers near Braemar Avenue. She could see a battering ram and officers with tactical weapons.
“There’s mention of a weapon so we’re asking people to stay inside,” one of the officers blocking the road told her.
A spokesperson with the police service would only say officers were called to assist a woman who appeared to be in distress. The call came in just before 8:30 a.m.
Marion is closed for two blocks, between Traverse Avenue and Enfield Crescent.
