Kelowna RCMP remain on the scene after a building at the intersection of Chapman Place and Rosemead Avenue was partially evacuated early Monday morning.

"They just told me to grab my essential stuff and basically get out," said a person who lives in the building.

The resident says they were woken up by a loud banging on their door at 1:30 a.m. Monday.

"I was just sleeping when I heard somebody like the cops outside with their shotguns getting loaded, they banged on my door and told me I had to evacuate the building."

The tipster asked to remain anonymous but says they saw officers with pistols drawn going door to door, "when I went downstairs to the first floor there was a man laying there, super bloody, cops are still on the scene."

The resident says half of the building was evacuated. He was out of his apartment from 1:30 a.m. until 5:30 a.m. Monday.

He said he also witnessed a woman being arrested. An estimated 10 police cars and two ambulances were on scene.
