Boulevard Harvey is closed between Rue Saint-Hubert and Rue Saint Rémi in the Jonquière district. Police formed a perimeter around the 32-year-old’s home and the residents were evacuated.
Fireworks from Sureté du Québec are also available on site.
Police have been in contact with the man who appears to be angry. He smashed two windows in his apartment and threw a piece of wood out of the window, while the Radio Canada team was at the scene.
However, at the end of the afternoon, the police lost contact with the man. The police tried to send him messages via megaphone.
Then a robot went to his second-floor apartment to get him a cell phone.
