Botched BC bank heist: More details emerge about twin brothers killed in police shootout

Global News published this video item, entitled “Botched BC bank heist: More details emerge about twin brothers killed in police shootout” – below is their description.

More details are coming to light about the Vancouver Island twin brothers who were killed last week when police say they attempted an armed bank robbery in Saanich, B.C.

Six officers were injured in the shooting while brothers Isaac and Mathew Auchterlonie of Duncan, B.C. were both killed.

More recently, both brothers worked at Pacific Energy in Duncan until late June. The company manufactures wood stoves and gas fireplaces.

Retired Saanich police officer Chris Horsley told Global News he noticed right away the similarities between this incident and the 1997 North Hollywood shootout.

“It truly is the worst-case scenario because those suspects appear to have gone and prepared for an armed encounter.”
