Police say multiple people are injured following an armed bank robbery and a shootout with police at what appears to be the Shelbourne Street BMO.

At the end of that video, a cop sounds like he yells "he's dead".

 

There is an area lockdown in place, and the Redit "news" mill indicates people are being informed a shooter may have evaded police.

There's a video that someone posted as a comment to another article which was taken from the Fujiya parking lot. Shows a group of officers with tactical gear going around the side of Fujiya towards the bank and then shots start being fired.

Saanich PD is asking residents of the area to shelter in place. A suspect could be on the loose.

Yes, there's a huge barrage of gunfire in that video.

RJH Emergency has just enacted its protocols to prepare to accept multiple gunshot injuries ... this could be quite serious.

Got to give the cops credit. They all ran towards danger here.

And indeed, someone is firing off dozens of combined rounds. Over a fairly extended period too.

Two people are in custody and police are searching for a possible third suspect after a shooting at a Saanich bank on Tuesday.

People in the area of North Dairy Road to Cedar Hill Cross Road, and Richmond Road to Cedar Hill Road are advised to stay indoors as officers look for a potential third suspect.

Officers responded to a report of armed suspects at a bank in the 3600-block of Shelbourne, near Pear Street, Saanich police said.

Someone on Reddit said 2 dead in parking lot. Rumors are 1 police officer and 1 suspect.
Hope it’s not true.

"In custody" this early in the process doesn't immediately translate into "still alive".

 

The still photo linked to above appears to show a deceased person in the middle of the parking lot, with little attention being paid him, while officers are gathered into three other groups, appearing to be rendering aid and/or restraining a suspect.

 

**edit** - I wouldn't trust current reporting from either the TC or Vic News. The police have released no statements at this point in time, which implies that the papers are getting their news from the same place we are, Facebook, Redit, Twitter, and elsewhere on the internet.

Indeed. And that one of all. I’m sure it has limited cash.

Old habits die hard I suppose. Most robbers are hopped up on drugs.

These guys sounded like more than a couple tweakers. Getting a group of 2 or 3 together takes a bit of planning. And maybe had semi auto weapons at their disposal. Not super common

True.

Sometimes when you get two or more idiots together their intelligence is lesser than their parts. And they make a fanciful plan that makes little sense.

I am sure the fire arms they had were worth more than any amount of cash they could get from a bank...
