Brandon Police Service’s Tactical Response Unit was seen operating in the area of the 300 block of Maryland Ave late Friday afternoon.
Vehicle and pedestrian traffic along Maryland Ave between 1st St. and the 400 block of Maryland Ave was completely shut down, as the Tactical Response Unit appeared to be operating in the area of Cornell Bay and Maryland Ave.
Brandon Police Service released this statement on their social medias: “We would like to ask the public to avoid the area of the 300 block of Maryland Ave while our members conduct an investigation. We are unable to provide further information at this time.” This message was followed by an “all clear” about 2 hours later.
It is unclear the specifics of the police situation at this time.
