St. Albert RCMP are investigating an incident that occurred in the early-morning hours of Friday, Oct. 28, but a detachment spokesperson says they're currently unable to release any details.
The undefined incident happened around 1:00 a.m. in the neighbourhood of North Ridge, and personnel from the St. Albert RCMP detachment, as well as the RCMP's emergency response team attended the scene, Cst. M.J. Burroughs told the Gazette.
As of 7:17 a.m., when the St. Albert RCMP published a news release, the emergency response team's involvement was no longer needed, and Burroughs said the team won't be aiding in the ongoing investigation.
Burroughs was unable to say what exactly occurred or if there were any injuries or arrests, but she added that there is no risk to the general public. RCMP are also not looking for witnesses to come forward with information, Burroughs said.
The news release states that residents should be advised that there will be an ongoing police presence in North Ridge.
It is unlikely additional details will be released today, as the investigation will need more time, Burroughs said.
"It’s under investigation and when I’m able to release more details, I’ll do an update,” she said.
