Winnipeg police are on scene in Tyndall Park after a stolen vehicle investigation became a standoff Monday morning.

A section of Kinver Avenue was blocked off near Fuga Bay at about 9 a.m., with marked and unmarked cruisers present, in addition to the armoured vehicle and an ambulance.

“I think there’s a concern that there might be weapons in the residence, which is why we’ve seen the response that we have,” Const. Jay Murray said.
