Neighbours gathered to watch as a brief police standoff unfolded in the Polo Park area Tuesday night, ending with several people being led away in handcuffs.

The incident began around 7:15 p.m., when members of the Winnipeg Police Service could be seen with their guns drawn, assembling around a small, one-storey house in the 300 block of Madison Street.

Approximately 10 police vehicles, including the armoured vehicle known as ARV1, were at the scene, along with a canine unit.

By about 7:45 p.m., police could be heard over a loudspeaker, telling the home’s occupants to come out.
