A man in crisis has been apprehended after some tense moments on Wednesday morning, police say.

Officers arrived at a massage parlour at Ingram Drive and Kincort Street after receiving a call from staff at the Toronto Star just before 10:40 a.m.

The newspaper alerted police after receiving a call from a man who allegedly said he “won’t be coming out alive” and “will have to be killed by cops.”

By 11 a.m., police, including the Emergency Task Force, arrived at the building and located a man considered to be in crisis.

A large portion of Kincort was locked down for roughly 30 minutes until officers were able to successfully negotiate with the man.

No injuries were reported.
