CTV News is reporting that an incident that started in Lac La Biche this morning has resulted in the arrests of six suspects just south of Edmonton.
Though it’s unclear exactly what happened in Lac La Biche at this time, police eventually started a pursuit in Redwater before finally catching them in Wetaskiwin. The suspects ended up fleeing on foot but five were eventually taken into custody.
RCMP say an encounter involving a second vehicle resulted in an officer firing his gun. That suspect has also been taken into custody unharmed.
ASIRT is investigating the discharge of the officer’s firearm and police are still investigating the incident.
