Published November 11, 2021 at 3:51 pm

The standoff between Durham Region Police and an armed man barricaded inside an Oshawa home has been resolved following an arrest.

Residents of the Olive Avenue and Wilson Road area of southern Oshawa awoke the morning of November 11 to a heavy police presence as officers tried to extract the man from the home.

Three nearby schools; Clara Hughes, St. Hedwig and David Bouchard were ordered into hold and secure procedure and residents were advised to stay clear of the area around 8 a.m.

Hours later, around 2:30 p.m. police declared the situation resolved after they arrested a person they did not describe at the scene.

DRPS announced on Twitter, around 10 a.m. they would not release anymore information regarding the standoff until the situation resolved. With a person in custody that update can be expected soon, but no specifics have yet been provided.

Police remain on site to investigate.
