RCMP say initial reports were the building had been evacuated of all staff and customers when officers arrived at the bank on 72nd Avenue in the Newton area of Surrey.

Witnesses say police have surrounded a TD Canada Trust branch at the corner of a shopping plaza.

An employee at a nearby store says 15 to 20 police cars have been stationed outside the bank since before she arrived at work.

The woman who did not wish to give her name says officers came by her store and told her to stay away from the area.

Another employee at a business about a block from the bank says police would not allow her to enter her workplace and that she went in through a back door.
