Man Charged After Armed Standoff on Peguis First Nation

RCMP Logo VehicleA 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.
