Emergency Response Team attends incident in Red Deer

RCMP have released very little information about mysterious incident

An RCMP Emergency Response Team was called to Red Deer on Wednesday evening during a disturbance that closed roads in one neighbourhood for hours.

Police secured the location to ensure public safety and an Emergency Response Team from Edmonton was brought in to assist. Roads in the area were closed for approximately seven hours but have since been reopened.

RCMP said that the public was not in any risk during their investigation.

Police have not released any other information.
