Police said the man made further threats from his Selkirk apartment and said officers would be harmed if they tried to arrest him.

After cordoning off the man’s apartment building on Manitoba Avenue, police were able to convince the man to turn himself in after several hours of negotiation. A BB handgun was seized from his home.
