A northeast Edmonton intersection remained closed Monday evening as police continued an investigation into a weapons complaint that also appeared to result in a collision involving a police vehicle.

“Officers responded to a weapons complaint earlier this afternoon and when police located the suspect vehicle, a short criminal flight event occurred,” an EPS spokesperson said in an email. “Members made direct vehicle contact with the suspect vehicle in the area of 153 Avenue and 45 Street and multiple suspects were apprehended.

“The matter is still under investigation. No injuries have been reported at this time.”

Images captured by a Global News crew at the scene show a black sedan that had the front end touching the driver’s side of a white SUV. The airbags in the SUV had clearly been deployed. The images also show an EPS vehicle directly behind the sedan and another EPS vehicle next to the sedan.
