GANANOQUE – A man is being treated at a local hospital after a standoff with Gananoque police Tuesday night.
Town police were called to a home in the Victoria Avenue and Second Street area for a man in crisis, the force tweeted around 8:30 p.m.
Police say the accused had threatened police and also said he would hurt himself.
Officers set up a perimeter around the area to keep people away.
Gananoque Police Service and O.P.P. negotiators worked for at least a couple of hours before the man gave up and the situation came to a safe conclusion.
The force tweeted around 10:30 p.m. that the “active situation has been resolved” but barricades around the area would remain in place.
The man was taken to hospital for treatment.
