There is a large police presence in the area of Drovers Run in Niverville. Police say that area will be blocked off for a large portion of the day.

This is an investigation involving RCMP and Winnipeg Police Service. At 5:42 Wednesday morning, Manitoba RCMP indicated that one female was in custody and that one male had fled the scene in a stolen vehicle.
