RCMP identify suspect in armed standoff
West Shore RCMP have identified the man at the centre of an armed standoff in Langford this past weekend.
36 year old Michael Godolphin, was arrested after a three hour armed standoff with police on Veteran’s Memorial Parkway on Saturday.
Appearing distraught, he fired two shots from a gun, terrifying drivers on the busy roadway and forcing the evacuation of the nearby RONA store.
No one was injured in the incident and Godolphin surrendered to police at about 8 pm Saturday.
He has a lengthy criminal record and is known to police, who say drugs may have been a factor.
