A shelter in place order has been lifted after a barricaded man was taken into custody after firing shots at police in Ohsweken overnight on Thursday, November 30, 2023.

Six Nations Const. Cody Johnson says reports were received Thursday night of shots being fired and upon arrival, police were confronted by a man with a firearm who then barricaded himself inside a building.

In a post shared to social media, Sgt. Ed Sanchuck says the barricaded person began firing at police officers and no injuries were reported.

The individual was successfully taken into custody a few hours after police first altered the public to the incident.

The incident forced the closure of Six Line between Chiefswood Road and Tuscarora Road as officers responded. The roadway is expected to reopen shortly.

Residents in the area were asked to shelter in place and drivers to avoid the area until the incident was resolved.

“The Six Nations Police Service would like to thank the motoring public and members of the community while officers brought this incident to a successful resolution,” said Chief Darren Montour, Six Nations Police Service.
