"Around 2:45 p.m. on March 13, 2023, officers were dispatched to a residential building in the area of Lasalle Boulevard and Keewatin Court in relation to a person in crisis.

Due to the potential of violence and the possible presence of weapons, members of Patrol Operations set up containment of the building as it was believed that the person was alone, inside the residential unit.
