A report of a fight in Norway House Dec. 31 led to an hour-long standoff at a neighbouring residence before 11 people were arrested, one of them for firearms offences.
Norway House RCMP attended a residence around 7:40 p.m. New Year's Eve after receiving a report of two men fighting inside. When they arrived, officers were told that one of the men, aged 25, had fled to a neighbouring home with a shotgun and ammunition.
Police contained the area around the home, which they learned had as many as 13 people inside, and tried unsuccessfully to make contact with the occupants.
Around 8:45 p.m., several people left the residence and surrendered to police, who then entered the home and arrested those who remained inside without incident. RCMP located and seized a loaded shotgun in the home.
Alec Muswagon, 25, was arrested and charged with firearms offences and remanded into custody.
Six men, ranging in age from 18 to 67, were arrested at the scene along with four women between the ages of 19 and 30. They were released to appear in court at a later date and Norway House RCMP continue investigating.
