Canada RCMP close off residential area in Moncton for possibly armed suspect

A residential area in Moncton, N.B., has been closed off for several hours as police try to make contact with a man who may be armed inside a home.

RCMP Sgt. Aurele Pelletier says officers have blocked off several roads in the area since 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Pelletier says the man is believed to be alone in the residence and police are dealing with the situation as if he is armed.

Officers remained at the scene into the night, but police have yet to make contact with the suspect.

Pelletier says there is no threat to the public.

Some residents vacated their homes over the course of the afternoon, which Pelletier stressed was voluntary.
