Brandon Police have closed down access on several downtown streets, this afternoon.

They are calling it a "high risk" incident in the 300 block of 2nd Street.

Police are hoping to keep the public away from the area surrounding the 300 block of 2nd Street including 1st Street and Lorne Avenue, the 200 through 400 block of 2nd Street, and any access to the 300 block of 2nd Street.

This follows a late morning incident in the area of First Street and Victoria Avenue, which appeared to involve two people being arrested out of a vehicle near the intersection.

More as it develops.
