A potentially dangerous situation ended peacefully last weekend on Peguis First Nation when an armed man surrendered to RCMP.
Police were called March 10 about a woman who had witnessed her husband load a firearm in their residence. She was able to make it out of the home, but couldn’t retrieve her infant son in time.
Officers had established a perimeter around the home and made contact with the man. About six hours later, he came out and surrendered to police.
RCMP say there wasn’t a threat to public safety during the standoff.
The infant was located unharmed inside.
Police also seized two firearms.
Clarence Cochrane, 22, of Peguis First Nation, faces several firearm-related charges. He appeared in Winnipeg court on Tuesday and released to attend court in Peguis on April 10.
