Four men were arrested without incident. But police say a fifth accused wouldn’t go so easy, crawling out the window of the residence and falling all the way down to the third-floor parkade. He suffered serious injuries in the process but has now been upgraded to stable condition.

Police say several guns, drugs, cash and ammunition were seized. Charges are now pending against the five men, aged 18 to 26. No names have been released.
