Ottawa police are responding to a shootout in the Elmvale Mall area on St. Laurent Blvd.

Police say a person has life-threatening injuries while a police officer has suffered minor injuries.

Officials were called to the area around 7:53 am on Thursday for a report from a suspicious person. At some point during the investigation, shots were fired.

Police did not confirm which person opened fire.

The Special Investigations Unit has been called to investigate – as it always does when police in Ontario are involved in a situation where someone is seriously injured or killed or alleges sexual assault.

Residents are being asked to avoid the area.

OC Transpo says the Elmvale transit station is closed until further notice.
