CHASE, - The RCMP say a man had to be taken down by police after he emerged from a bank following a lengthy standoff in the community of Chase, B.C., east of Kamloops.
Cpl. Dan Moskaluk says the man walked into the Royal Bank branch about 4:30 Thursday armed with a gun and knife.
The man told everyone to leave and then barricaded himself inside.
Moskaluk says after several hours officers persuaded the man to come out, but he then walked toward police ordering them to shoot him.
Officers used a riot control type weapon that shoots soft ammunition to take him down.
The 58-year-old man is now in hospital recovering from a self-inflicted wound and will be facing charges. (CHNL)
