At approximately 5:15 p.m. March 24, 2021, I was alerted to a heavy police presence on the west side of the city.

Upon arrival at the 0-100 block of Pretoria Hill, the Emergency Services Unit was seen preparing to enter a home.

The units on scene called out to the individual in the home, telling them the house was surrounded. They requested them to come out safely.

A K-9 was seen being deployed with its handler from one of the vehicles on scene.

Lincoln Louttit, Communications Manager for Sault Ste. Marie Police Services gave this statement to us at 6:55 p.m..

“Officers are currently on scene of a barricaded person on Pretoria Hill. We urge members of the public to avoid the area to allow officers to focus on the active scene,” said Louttit.

Paramedics were also on scene.
