Main Street has opened once again after being closed early Thursday evening.

Witnesses in the area described a large police presence. One witness said that Main Street was closed both directions between Cathedral and Atlantic.

The Winnipeg Police Service had only said that "a police operation is currently taking place in the vicinity of Main / Bannerman."

A spokesperson from the WPS has since said that the situation was resolved safely.

While police haven't released details on the situation witnesses in the area said that a number of officers were in the area. That included the WPS' armoured vehicle.
