Officers with the Winnipeg Police Service responded to an incident involving a woman being held against her will at an apartment building in the 200 block of College Avenue on Saturday. Officials said the apartment suite contained several occupants and firearms. The woman and several occupants were safely removed but additional occupants remain inside, armed and refusing to exit.

Police said a standoff occurred where a suspect in the suite discharged a firearm and struck three officers. The injuries to the officers, officials noted, were non-life-threatening.

Two men in their 40s were arrested and taken into custody. An investigation is ongoing.
