The RCMP is dealing with an armed and barricaded individual on Canyon Lister Road in Creston and is asking that residents avoid the area while the incident is underway.

Just after 10:30 a.m. this morning, frontline officers from Creston RCMP were called to a residence on Canyon Lister Road for a report of shots fired.

Officers at the scene have been attempting to make contact with the person inside the residence and a RCMP Crisis Negotiator and the Southeast District Emergency Response Team, as well as Police Dog Service have been deployed to assist, states S/Sgt. Janelle Shoihet of the BC RCMP. There are road closures currently in place on Canyon Lister Road and we are asking residents to avoid the area until the situation has been resolved.

Additionally, we ask the public not take photos or report officers’ locations through social media, which may jeopardise their safety.

More information will be released once the incident has been concluded.
