It’s tense in Hampstead today where a standoff is unfolding.
Since 730 last night, the RCMP have been set up outside a home on Highway 102 where a man in his 40’s barricaded himself inside.
Negotiators and other police resources have been brought in to assist but, the man refuses to come out.
RCMP Spokesperson Chantal Farrah tells us the negotiators are working towards a peaceful resolution to the situation.
Road blocks are set up on Highway 102 near the Hampstead Ferry Road where traffic has been rerouted since last night.
