Police stand off in Eastview

July 13, there was something going in in Eastview Estates on Everett Cr. Police had the entire subdivision blocked off from around 5:00 & then changed that to Everett Cr around 8:00 or 8:30 until between 9:30 & 10::00.

All we've been able to find out is that the police were in a stand off with a guy who had a gun. It was not a robbery at the Express 24 gas station. We don't know what house was involved or even if the police got the guy.

We've checked the local newspapers, radio statiins & there is NOTHING about this at all. Does anyone out there know what happened?

I live on Everitt Cres on the more eastside of the street, and wasn't able to get into my house that night. Once they had started letting people back in there homes I still wasnt allowed near ours and the cop at the blockade told me that I would have to wait a while longer because of my address being very close to the site they were dealing with. He did mention then that the first part of it was being resolved but that I wouldnt be allowed back untill the second part was wrapped up. When I finlly was allowed to go in quick to get my boyfriend (who hadnt been asked to evacuate like everyone else on the street) and change, it seemed like it was definitly one of the houses on my end of the street judging by where the cop cars and vans were. I heard on one of the radio stations about two weeks later that there had been a call reporting a suicidal gun man in one of the houses, but no report of a break in, so it sounded like a family member or neighbour may have called the police on that person who im assuming lived there. The radio also said that oil field explosives had been found in the home when it was searched, which i think was most likely the second part the cop had mentioned and the first would have been them arresting the guy. The radio had also said that the guy was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation. Hope this helps, its all I have heard, they really seemed to keep a tight lid on it to the tv and radio stations. Which makes me quite mad because even though I live on the street and it would of been within three houses of mine, I have no idea what house it was or what house to keep an eye on if anything suspicious or out of place happens in the future. For all I know a suicidal gunman could be back living on my street instead of still being in a hospital.
