Police arrest armed man

An emergency alert about an armed man in a neighbourhood northeast of Edmonton ended Sunday with the suspect’s arrest. Residents of the Pineview community in Fort Saskatchewan were told in an Alberta Emergency Alert on Sunday morning to shelter in place as police looked for a 32-year-old man who they’d said was armed. Later Sunday afternoon, RCMP said the man was located and taken into custody without incident, and the alert was rescinded. RCMP say they anticipate remaining on scene for some time.
