"One man is in custody," said Leykauf. "The residence is empty, but is secured and officers are on scene still investigation. No shots were fired and no one was injured. We want to thank the public for their patience."

The incident began in the overnight hours on Wednesday and into Thursday morning at a home in the 500 block of Tralee Cres.

“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.”

The Lower Mainland District Integrated Emergency Response Team assisted police in the incident.
