    I reside in the building this incident occurred. I live floors below and watched the police and tactical teams arrive and eventually handcuff the woman. Incidentally, the photo listed is incorrect. The apartment is slightly further East down lakeshore, beside the Esso gas station. Would love to read a follow up report. Thanks.
