A man has been arrested after an armed standoff with Saskatoon police that lasted for almost seven hours.
Police say they got word late Thursday afternoon about a distressed person with a firearm in an apartment on the city's west side.
Initial attempts to get the 24-year-old man to give himself up failed, so an emergency response team and crisis negotiators were called to the scene.
The suspect eventually surrendered without incident around 12:30 a.m. and no one was hurt.
Police say a sawed-off shotgun was found when officers went through the apartment.
They also say the suspect was already facing arrest warrants for alleged breach of probation.
