Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga

Peel Regional Police are negotiating with a lone barricaded person in crisis near Credit Valley Hospital (CVH) in west Mississauga this afternoon (Sept. 30) in attempts to get them to surrender peacefully.

In what police are calling an “ongoing, isolated incident,” they say they’re in contact with a “barricaded person who is alone” and that no injuries have yet been reported.

The incident has been ongoing for nearly seven hours near the Eglinton Ave. W./Erin Mills Pkwy. area hospital.

Police said via Twitter in the last 30 minutes that “negotiations continue” and they’re telling the public to stay away from the area until further notice.

They add that the CVH emergency department continues to operate normally.

Police deployed numerous officers to the scene this morning (Sept. 30) as the situation unfolded related to a “person in crisis.”

Police were called to the scene shortly after 7:30 a.m. for what was first described as an “isolated incident that is contained.”

A heavy police presence remains at the scene.

Earlier, insauga.com reached out to Peel police for further details, but none were forthcoming.

“Information is limited and the investigation is ongoing,” said police.

Multiple roads in the area remain closed, including Credit Valley Rd. at Metcalfe Ave., and the northbound and southbound lanes on Erin Mills Pkwy. from Eglinton Ave.
