The Edmonton Police Service said it arrested a 39-year-old man wanted in connection to a violent stolen vehicle pursuit in northern Alberta last summer.

According to police, officers responded to a weapons complaint Thursday on Lakeview Road in west Edmonton. The suspect identified by EPS had warrants for a July shooting offence and criminal flight from the RCMP in Valleyview, Alta.

The man was taken into custody during a traffic stop without incident, EPS said. A pair of imitation firearms were also seized.
