At 12:16 am Halton Regional Police were dealing with a barricaded subject in Burlington.

The incident started as a domestic situation at a Milton restaurant. The subject left the restaurant and was seen driving away. His vehicle was located shortly thereafter at his residence on Colonsay Drive in Burlington.

Officers from Burlington who responded to the residence were threatened by the subject with a firearm. He then retreated back into his home.

The male was observed with one weapon as he threatened officers and he is believed to have several more inside the house.

Officers have sealed off the home and are maintaining a perimeter. The Tactical Rescue Unit, K9 and a negotiator have been dispatched to the scene and are currently making attempts to have the subject, who is alone in the home, surrender.

As a precaution, Halton Police are asking residents on Colonsay Drive, St. Frances Drive, Peart Court and Augustine Drive to remain inside and lock their doors.

Updates will be issued as developments occur.
