There was a scary situation Friday morning on the north side of the city as Moose Jaw Police responded to a report of a suicidal man. Officers were called to Highland Road around 5am after learning about a man inside a vehicle near the TransCanada Highway, behind the Dr Wigmore Hospital. As police tried to locate him, they heard a gunshot and quickly set up a perimeter.
Police worked with the man for three hours before he eventually surrendered according to Inspector Rick Johns. "First and foremost is his health and safety so he was taken to the hospital to be assessed for both his physical and mental well being and he's, in all likelihood, going to be facing some criminal charges."
Police have not released a name as they continue the investigation but are pleased to report that no one was injured during the incident.
