There were some tense moments yesterday on 53rd Street in downtown Yellowknife after the RCMP received a call for service.
A witness on the scene told Moose News that a man was threatening to harm himself outside a residence and then proceeded inside his home where there were weapons present.
Update: An RCMP officer just exited the dwelling with two firearms and safely secured them. https://t.co/5bZTnrIFVj
