Selkirk, Manitoba

News release


On August 26, 2022, at approximately 12:10 pm, Selkirk RCMP received a report of a male having brandished a firearm at an employee at the Provincial Building located on Main Street in Selkirk. The male then made a threat and left the building. No injuries were reported.

Police were then advised that the suspect had returned to his apartment and made additional threats that officers would be harmed if they attempted to arrest him.

Officers from Selkirk, including our Emergency Response Team (ERT), attended to the apartment building in the 1000 block of Manitoba Avenue and setup a safety perimeter. ERT officers secured the floor where the suspect's residence was located.

RCMP negotiators made contact with the suspect and after a several hours of dialogue, convinced him to turn himself in.

At approximately 3:00 pm, the suspect surrendered to ERT officers and was taken to the Selkirk Detachment. Officers seized a BB handgun from the location.

Michael Edward Nash, 41, was remanded into custody for a court appearance scheduled August 29, 2022, in Winnipeg for Uttering Threats, Causing a Disturbance and several firearm-related charges.

Selkirk RCMP continue to investigate.
