VIDEO: Tear Gas Used in 7 Hour Stand-Off in Burlington


Halton Regional Police are dealing with a barricaded person in a Burlington home.

The incident started as a domestic situation at a Milton Restaurant late Sunday night. The person left the restaurant and was seen driving away. His vehicle was located shortly thereafter at Colonsay Drive in Burlington.

Officers from Burlington that responded to the residence were threatened by the subject with the firearm. He then went back to his home.

The male was observed with one weapon as he threatened the officers and he is believed to have several more inside.

The officers have sealed off the home and are maintaining a perimeter. The tactical Rescue unit, K9 and a negotiator have been dispatched to the scene and currently making attempts to have the subject surrender.

Updates will follow.
