Once at the residence, police required the assistance of the Island District's Emergency Response Team, Police Dog Services, Crisis Negotiation Team, Campbell River Major Crimes Unit.

"The Campbell River RCMP would like to thank the public for staying out of the area, as had been requested by police, says Sergeant Chris Voller.

I want to remind people to refrain from posting photographs and videos of police incidents while they are unfolding, adds Sgt. Voller. Posting and sharing such images place both the police and civilians at greater risk, as often the people that police are interacting with, may make use of these images or alter their behaviours, resulting in greater risk to all involved."

Campbell River RCMP are asking that anyone with information related to these events to please contact the Detachment at 1-250-286-6221 and reference file number 2022-10627.
