Police tell people in St. Boniface to 'stay inside'

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.
