You'll have to read between the lines on this one.
Special Cst. John Schultz says "This is the type of occurrence we don’t release information on. Traffic was rerouted for a short period of time at Marshall Avenue by Summit to ensure safety. There were no injuries."
Police will often use this type of language if there is a possibility of suicide, however, in this case, a police source said the house was empty. SWAT teams are often deployed when police believe a weapon is involved.
BayToday was at the scene.
North Bay police closed a busy Marshall Ave. early this morning and brought out the SWAT team in what police say was a potential major incident but turned out to be a false alarm to an empty house.
It happened around 7:30 at the intersection of Marshall and Prince Edwards Drive, just past Silver Birches School.
Not many details so far, but police say a news release will be issued later this morning.
A police spokesman says the incident was resolved peacefully.
All roads reopened at 8 a.m.
