The Comox Valley RCMP assisted their Port McNeill counterparts Tuesday during a standoff with a 32-year-old man, which ended when the man was arrested without incident.

The incident started about 11 a.m. when Port McNeill RCMP responded to reports of a man with a rifle in a townhouse complex. Believing the man was armed, police cordoned off the area and evacuated neighbours.
