Male in Custody Following Firearm Investigation in Oshawa

A male is in custody after he was seen carrying a firearm and barricaded himself in an Oshawa residence.

On Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at approximately 10:55 a.m., members of Central East Division responded to an armed person call in the area of Colborne Street West and Kaiser Crescent. The suspect was observed carrying a firearm into an apartment complex. Police confirmed the unit the suspect entered and set up a perimeter around the complex. Initial attempts by negotiators to have the suspect surrender himself were unsuccessful. Four other persons were determined to be inside the unit.

After further investigation, four of the occupants were released from police custody unconditionally.
