Standoff in Cochrane ends without incident
A standoff has ended peacefully after police surrounded a home in Cochrane late Sunday night.
RCMP say around 5 p.m. a man dressed in camouflage was spotted near Highway 22, carrying what appeared to be a long gun slung over his shoulder. Police reportedly caught up with him at a community skate park and tried talking to him, but he ignored them and went into a nearby field.
A Calgary police helicopter was called in, and the area was cordoned off as residents were told to stay inside.
Later, police surrounded a home on Quigley Dr. in an apparent effort to call the man out.
Shortly after, Alberta RCMP later tweeted that the “situation in Cochrane” had ended peacefully.
A man is in custody and facing charges.
