Suspects arrested after RCMP deals with 'armed' situation in Manitoba city

PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. — RCMP say they have four people in custody following what they described as an armed and barricaded situation in a central Manitoba community.

The Mounties' emergency response team was called early Tuesday morning to a home in Portage la Prairie, about 85 kilometres west of Winnipeg.

People in a northeast neighbourhood of the city were asked to stay indoors and not to post anything on social media until the situation had ended.

Police later issued a brief statement on Twitter saying suspects had been arrested and that the scene had been secured.

There was no immediate word on injuries.

Tara Seel, an RCMP spokeswoman, would not say what led up to the call, nor would she elaborate on how many people were in the home.
