Standoff Ends without Incident


Court StreetTHUNDER BAY – The stand-off on South Court Street has ended.  A 42 year old Thunder Bay man surrendered to police at approximately 5:00 a.m. on Saturday morning.

TBPS reported, on Sunday that “The stand-off related to a domestic incident which occurred just before 12:00 a.m. on November 5, 2010 at a separate address in the city’s north end.  It is alleged that the accused male had made threats to his former spouse with a shotgun.  The 39 year old female victim was not injured.  The male left this residence and walked back to his own apartment in the 100 block of South Court Street”.

“Thunder Bay Police Service officers including the Emergency Task Unit were involved in the stand-off which began just after 2:00 a.m. Friday morning.  A perimeter was set up around the male’s residence and a long process of negotiations began to get the male to surrender peacefully to police.  The male exited the residence and was taken into custody without incident at approximately 5:00 a.m. Saturday morning”.

The 42-year-old male is facing a number of charges related to this incident.  His name can not be released as it would help to identify the victim in the original domestic incident.

The male will appear in court today.  Investigators will be searching the residence later today.

The T.B.P.S. would like to thank the residents and businesses in the area of the stand-off for their cooperation.
