Delta police are on scene Thursday in Tsawwassen dealing with an incident at a home in the 500 block of Tralee Cres.
DPD spokesperson Cris Leykauf said the incident started sometime overnight Wednesday and into Thursday morning.
“The individual in question refused to exit the residence, and a Delta police negotiator was called in to assist in this process,” said Leykauf. “Negotiations continued overnight, but unfortunately were not successful. A warrant was then obtained, and the individual is refusing to comply with police demands.”
Leykauf said the Lower Mainland District Integrated Emergency Response Team is now on site. The individual remains barricaded in the home.
“There has been a lot of speculation on social media that residents may have heard shots fired, but that is not the case,” added Leykauf. “There is a perimeter in place and we ask the public to respect instructions from police.”
