MONTREAL — Police have converged near the offices of Ubisoft, a French video game company, in Montreal’s Mile End neighborhood and are carrying out an operation, police officials said on Friday.

Police told local residents in the neighborhood, an area filled with cafes and restaurants, to keep away.

Local television reports showed Ubisoft staff on the roof of their office building, but the circumstances were not clear.

Montreal police wrote on Twitter that they had responded to a 911 call and that there were no reports of injuries.

Ubisoft has offices in dozens of countries. The Montreal office went through a major recruitment drive last year, and now has more than 3,000 employees.
