Multiple police vehicles surrounded Yellowknife’s Sunridge Place apartment building on Tuesday evening, temporarily blocking off access to a stretch of 51A Avenue.

Eight RCMP vehicles, including an unmarked car, were parked outside the apartment building as of 8:30pm on Tuesday. An ambulance was also present.

By the end of Tuesday evening, the nature of the incident remained unclear.


Police could be seen placing caution tape around a stretch of the road, blocking off through traffic.

A man identifying himself as a resident of Sunridge Place told Cabin Radio RCMP officers had entered the building and were allowing nobody in or out.

RCMP are expected to provide more information on Wednesday.
