Police Kill Man Inside Bank North of Toronto (Dec. 13, 2017)

Details are still emerging after police killed a man in an RBC Bank in a commercial plaza in Maple, Ontario, north of Toronto. Initial media reports suggest the man was armed and there may have been a standoff and hostage situation. These reports have not been independently confirmed by sources beyond police at this point.

Police attended the scene in response to a call at about 1 PM. It is reported that they arrived at the RBC branch to find a gunman as well as a number of other people inside, including staff and clients. A negotiating team was brought in but it is not clear if they negotiated with the victim before killing him. At the time of writing the bank is still being cleared and there are no confirmed details on how many people were in the bank at the time or the reason the victim was in the bank.
