Ridge Meadows RCMP are still on scene after dealing with a standoff situation in Maple Ridge last night on 228th Street, which took several hours to resolve, stretching late into the night.
According to police, members of the Ridge Meadows RCMP and Emergency Response Team (ERT) were called to a residence in the 12100-block of 228th Street around 11:30 a.m. on Friday, where an unknown individual had barricaded himself in a residence and was refusing to surrender to police.
Various neighbours reported hearing the windows of the residence being shot out and flashbangs being used.
At 8:30 p.m., police were still trying to convince the suspect to surrender themselves.
Cpl. Julie Klaussner confirmed that an arrest had been made at some point and the scene was held for a search warrant, but would reveal no further details due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.
