Axe-wielding man holed up in East Vancouver home


WATCH: John Daly has news of an armed man barricaded in a house in Vancouver

Main Street in Vancouver is now open at East 51st after an axe-wielding man allegedly threatened another man. It was closed for about seven hours.

Police say the axe-wielding man then ran into a nearby home.

Translink was re-routing buses in the area and drivers were asked to avoid those streets.

It is unclear at this time how the dispute ended or if anyone was taken into custody.
