Update 5 a.m.: Police said a 32-year-old man has been arrested near Granum in connection with the incident. The scene on Dalhousie Court has been cleared. More information is expected Monday.


LETHBRIDGE - Police were called to the 100 block of Heritage Blvd west around 10:00 p.m. Sunday night to deal with a high-risk incident.

The area was cordoned off and the street was flooded with police vehicles.  The Explosives Disposal Unit was on-site and numerous officers in tactical gear and sporting firearms could be seen.  Residents were advised to avoid the area.

Several people in the neighbourhood reported they heard what they thought were gunshots. Some individuals on social media labelled the situation as an ‘active shooter’, prompting police to release a bulletin refuting the ‘active shooter’ comments.

Just before 12:00-am, police began to clear the area along Heritage Blvd and the public was allowed to return to the area. No one had been injured. A police news release stated a home had been searched, but the subject was not located.

Officers then moved to a second location along Dalhousie Court and the public was again advised to avoid the area.
