A Regina police officer used a Taser on a man on Thursday night after he barricaded himself in a business on Victoria Avenue.

Police were called to the 1700 block of Victoria Avenue around 7:25 p.m. after a man armed with a knife came into the business and locked himself in the back office.

Officers attempted to negotiate with the man were unsuccessful. Police believe he was either having a mental health crisis or may have been high.

The man was taken into custody after an officer used a Taser on him.

He was admitted to the Regina General Hospital.
