Winnipeg Standoff Ends With Three in Custody


WINNIPEG, MB. - On February 27, 2021, members of the North District Community Service Unit were granted a pair of entry warrants for a residence in the 600 block of McGee Street. It was believed that two males, who were subjects of outstanding arrest warrants, were at the house (Monkman & Simard).


At approximately 11:09 a.m., with the Tactical Support Team's assistance, both entry warrants were executed. Several individuals exited the residence, including Monkman, who was taken into custody without incident.


It was determined that Simard was still inside, along with another male (Daher, who was wanted for second-degree murder from a homicide in October 2020 and a shooting incident in January 2021). Both males were uncooperative, and it was believed that they could be armed with firearms.


General Patrol officers, along with the Armoured Rescue Vehicle (ARV), were deployed. With the Crisis Negotiation Unit's help, contact was made with the two males – who were understood to be hiding in an attic.


Throughout the afternoon, officers work diligently in an attempt to take the males into custody safely. At 6:40 p.m., Daher surrendered to police. About 10 minutes later, Simard did the same.


A loaded sawed-off 12 gauge shotgun, along with ammunition, was later seized from the house. No injuries were reported throughout the incident.
