They also asked residents to lock their doors and stay inside until the situation has been resolved.

Just before 5 p.m., police said the incident was over, with no one hurt and one suspect arrested on a trail near Hastings and Kitchener.

“The suspect will be treated for any medical issues before a report is forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service for potential approval of any charges, said Cpl. Michael McLaughlin in a media release.

“The police investigation will take some time.”
