Authorities have detained a 29-year-old after spending more than five hours negotiating with the suspect. 

Yesterday afternoon the Winnipeg Police Service responded to a report of an armed man inside of an Elice Avenue apartment building around 3:35 p.m.

A man refused to leave his apartment at the police's request, resulting in a five-hour standoff between the man and the police officers. 

The offender surrendered to the WPS at approximately 9 p.m.

After officers detained the suspect, they found two BB guns in the man's apartment. There were no injuries during the standoff.

The 29-year-old is currently in WPS custody. He was charged with two counts of Possession of a Weapon and six counts of Possession of Firearm, Restricted/Prohibited Weapon or Ammunition Contrary to Prohibition Order.
