Merville man involved in standoff with RCMP

The Comox Valley RCMP along with the assistance of the RCMP's Emergency Response Team were able to take a 50-year-old Merville man into custody after threats of a possible firearm being involved.

Shortly after 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 8, the Comox Valley RCMP received a report of a man threatening to hurt himself as well as others.  Reference was also made to the possibility of a firearm being involved.

The RCMP's general duty members received assistance from the Emergency Response Team.  Just before 9 a.m. one man was taken into custody without injury.  The 50-year-old Merville man is facing the possibility of charges which are yet to be determined as this investigation continues.
