SAANICH, B.C. — Police in Saanich, British Columbia, said police had reopened the area around the local bank, which was the scene of the deadly shooting last week.

Saanich police tweeted that the Bank of Montreal's crime scene on Shelbourne Street was released and reopened for all traffic.

Last Tuesday's shootout injured six police officers and killed a 22-year-old twin brother suspected of being behind the incident.

Victoria Police spokesman Bowen Osoko states that three police officers in the department were injured during the shootout.

He states that one remains in the hospital, but everyone faces a "long way".

Saanich Chief Const. Dean Duthie said last week that three department officers were hospitalized, including one in the intensive care unit, but another will need more surgery.

On Saturday, RCMP identified 22-year-old twins, Matthew and Isaac Auktelronnie, of Duncan, British Columbia, as two suspects who were killed during a gun battle with police outside the bank.
