Battlefords RCMP went on a pursuit of dangerous criminals in the early hours of Wednesday morning after an armed home invasion and multiple shots being fired in another area of the city.

Battlefords RCMP were called to a residence on the 1100 block of 109th street at 2:49 a.m. RCMP were advised that three males kicked in the front door to the residence and all were armed with firearms. The males took anything of value and left a short time later in an earlier stolen vehicle.

RCMP arrived on scene quickly and started their investigation. While on patrol looking for this vehicle, RCMP heard more shots being fired and converged on another area in the city. Officers located the suspect vehicle and attempted to stop it, the vehicle refused to stop and fled.

An RCMP member then engaged the vehicle in a pursuit, but called it off due to unsafe road conditions and the manner in which the suspect vehicle was being driven. The suspect vehicle was later located abandoned near Cutknife. RCMP do not believe this was a random incident.

Battlefords RCMP continue to investigate and they say arrests and charges are pending. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Battlefords RCMP or Crimestoppers.

More to come.
