An armed person has been spotted near First Ave and Simcoe Street in Oshawa early afternoon, prompting Durham Police to warn people to avoid the area.

There are reports from residents on social media of as many as a dozen police cruisers heading south of that intersection, which is just north of Hwy 401. There has been no confirmation it is related to the armed person call, though police are now saying the incident appears to be confined to a home in the area and there is no immediate danger to the public.

More information to follow.
